This version of Ghostscript does not work with CUPS due to missing generic "cups" raster image driver. The necessary support cannot be patched in due to incompatible licenses. Use ESP Ghostscript-7.07.1 instead if you have CUPS.
Install Ghostscript by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install
To install the shared library libgs.so, run the following additional commands:
make so && make soinstall
To finish the installation, unpack all fonts you've downloaded to /usr/share/ghostscript.
Ghostscript comes with a lot of filters to render PostScript/PDF files back and forth. Please refer to the HTML documentation or try man gs.
