Hello,

I have a problem of fonts with ghostscript because I can't render the apostrophe (0x2BC) when a postscript document has it. I've tried viewing document containing this character with gs (without argument, with X useflag) but the apostrophe is replaced by a blank square. A friend found out that this may be gs not using Nimbus monospace font as substitution font.

I'm trying to find the configuration directory (which is in /etc/ghostscript in debian) but nothing. The file I'm searching associate font names with font pfb files. Moreover I'm not sure that nimbus is currently installed (how to find which packet would install a particular file?). I need some help, thank you :)

You can view the PS file so you can try if this reproduce the problem too: http://pastebin.com/XgLNpUPs

You can see what is the log of ghostscript below:
