Well, all KOffice applications have this problem. Beside, OpenOffice.org 1.0.2 
isn't also able to produce neither PS, files, nor PDF files. Though I don't 
know wether they are related in some way, or not.

But anyway, ps2pdf works right now, and atleast I am able to send my homeworks 
to my lecturers.
