I tried it on two different PCs. I installed on one of them gs-gpl and after
that I was able to see ps document.

I report this as I miss error message in Evince that something is wrong.
Without message it is difficult for unexperienced user to fix it (like
instaling some missing gs package). I reported the bug as I am not happy that
Evince only prints "Loading...".

I don't know what is real problem; it could be mising dependency, or maybe
that my sample postrcript file was corrupted/incorrect. I am not expert on
this, developers should understand what is real issue and what is the best

>From the point of desktop user I miss information from Evince that something
is wrong and document cannot be presented.

Thanks for your help,
