The above has to be:
gs -sDEVICE=x11 file.ps
gs -sDEVICE=x11 file.pdf

or -sDEVICE=x11alpha instead of x11.

thank you Akira;
working fine,
export GS_DEVICE=x11   makes it the default

I am a newbie on fedora;
many years running redhat8, i was used to running
    gs  file.ps
and it all just worked;
I now see that under rh8  the default device  is  'x11'
whereas under fc5 the default device is 'display', which i had thot would work
but evidently not, gs requires  the  x11

Jack
