Tips For Easy Installation

Both the JE and Debian-JP distributions can be used to install precompiled binaries. I prefer the Debian-JP 1.3 distribution which is based on Aladdin GhostScript 4.0.3 with vector font support. Aladdin GhostScript 4.0.3 comes with these devices.

The GhostScript that comes with the JE distribution only comes with support for these devices:

Since I have a HP LaserJet 4 printer and I prefer to print with gs, I installed gs from the Debian-JP distribution.
