<p>Next,if installed, open up GSview and go to <strong>Options.. &#062; Advanced Configure</strong>. Then, make sure the &#034;Ghostscript Shared Object&#034; is pointing at the correct libgs.so. Below is how I have setup GSview on my system.: </p>

<p>Another tool which is available with GSview is <code>epstool</code>. An older version is shipped with the current GSview 4.6, but a newer one is available on the GSview home page. This is a great command line tool, which can perform advanced EPS/DCS 2.0 conversion. This is very useful when someone sends you an EPS file from other DTP applications - even those created on Macs. Upgrading this to work with GSview gives you excellent support on Linux to handle EPS files from all platforms. Recommended.</p>
<p>Lastly, one other tool which works as a plug-in with GSview is <code>pstoedit</code> This is a command line tool for converting bitmap images into vectors and PostScript, which then, depending on the nature of the image, can be edited in a vector drawing tool like Inkscape or Skencil. See the section Import Hints for hints on how I used this to convert the Scribus logo into SVG and then a native Scribus file. GSview uses this as a plug-in to convert files into vector format. </p>
