The OP was using the GIMP and it failed her, so she asked for

Perhaps she was happy because she didn't try anything else.

Please don't assume like this, I silently follow this thread well.

and I was surprised seeing that I have Inkscape and ghostscript installed.
Before I never realized this. and I did do a rough try.
Perhaps I should have said: anything else designed to view EPS files
(in particular) if the goal was to view these figures. I'm thinking
of gv and evince.
I tried acroread and evince before also.
If you tried Inkscape, was there any problem? Note: for
Debian/unstable (and perhaps testing too) users, there's currently a
bug (with potential security implications) in Inkscape when it tries
to open EPS files.
When open Inkscape from applicate menu, and open file open the eps has no problem.

but from command line, it showed:

ps2pdf failed:

Error: /undefinedfilename in (1.eps)
Operand stack:

GPL Ghostscript 9.04: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

Please forget the error message, ( I can still open by menu, and Inkscape is plan B in view eps now for me)

Concerning ghostscript, it isn't for the end user (though it may be
useful if everything else fails).

Thanks with best regards,
