Kghostview fail to show this file:
I made it using pdflatex, and other pdf viewers
(acrobat, xpdf) have no problems showing it.

Does kpdf open it?

(Kghostview is a ghostscript viewer, kpdf is a pdf viewer)
Yes, kpdf works. Perhaps the bug is with LyX, as it was LyX that decided to
use kghostview as a pdf viewer because it was available.

I thought pdf was a subset of ps though, so a ps viewer ought to display
pdf documents as well?
