I had this _exact_ problem. I initially fixed it by making a symlink of
the fonts directory from /usr/lib/ghostscript/4.01/fonts, or whatever it
but then I was told this was because I had an old debian package
I (and you) had an old ghostscript installed. The latest (4.03) is the
/non-free/binary-i386/gs-aladdin_4.03-7.deb and this problem will go
away when you install this new package.
If I remember correctly, I couldn't coerce dselect to do this
installation because of the version numbers. The ghostscript in text has
"gs_3.33-3.deb", which dselect sees as older than our 4.01. I assume
when we originally installed ghostscript it was called 4.01, but then
copyright reasons it was replaced whith an older version. Your problem
is (I believe) also fixed in gs_3.33-3.deb, so you can install it or
gs-aladdin_4.03-7.deb. Go with the gs-aladdin_4.03-7.deb unless you have
a problem with the copyright business.
I don't recall, but I may have done a "--purge" on ghostscript first,
BTW, if you use ghostview, you'll probably like "gv" _much_ better, as I
