I am trying to generate graphs using
text.usetex : True
ps.usedistiller : xpdf
Unfortunately, when running
import pylab as P
I get an error message:
File "/home/stefan//lib/python2.4/site-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_ps.py", line 1412, in get_bbox
raise RuntimeError('Ghostscript was not able to extract a bounding box.\
RuntimeError: Ghostscript was not able to extract a bounding box.Here is the Ghostscript output:

When I run with --verbose-debug-annoying I see

ERROR: /undefined in pdfLastFill
I am running gs v8.15.2, pdftops v3.00, dvipng v1.5 and xpdf v3.01. Are
these versions known to be incompatible, or is there possible a
problem with the output generated by matplotlib?
ps.usedistiller : ghostscript
everything runs smoothly, but the text looks pretty dismal.
I would appreciate any advice on how to get this running!
