Unpacking Ghostcript
Authored by: babbage on May 15, '01 10:04:46AM
...you seem to need to unpack GhostScript from your root ("/") directory, because it wants to put everything in your /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/share directories. If you unpack it from your home directory (or anywhere but / for that matter), it will create these underneath your current working directory. This is almost definitely not what you want to do. Do something like:
wget http://www.uoregon.edu/~koch/texshop/texshopold/gs.tar.gz
sudo mv gs.tar.gz /
cd /
sudo tar xzvf gs.tar.gz
rehash
