Hi,
When I start the vnc server and invoke the viewer
and try to run gv - ghostview - to display a postscript file
I get the following errors. Everything else works fine but does
seem a bit slow esp if viewing thru a web browser.

% gv file.ps

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--*-140-*-*-P-*-ISO8
859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--*-120-*-*-P-*-ISO8
859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--*-100-*-*-P-*-ISO8
859-1" to type FontStruct
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-Courier-Medium-R-Normal--*-100-*-*-M-*-ISO885
9-1" to type FontStruct

When the server is running on a remote system gv does seem to start up but I get 
the same messages and I also get a GhostScript error message window:

Error: PostScript interpreter failed in main window


Thanks in Advance!,
Scott
