That is probably the reason why I cannot print from netscape anymore. I
haven't looked into it but I definitely have that netscape problem even if I
print from netscape to a file and then try to print the file using gs.

Unfortunately there was no eps file on this mail.

I don't have it. Do I need it? If so why isn't there a dependency asking for
it? Or is it just because the /etc/gs.Fontmap file still lists the fonts? Or
because netscape uses only fonts from this package?

Could it also be related to the version of gs? I use gs-aladdin 5.50-6.
