[PlanetCCRMA] Ghostcript not working? Messes up lilypond and printing...

here's a session for me below. what happens when you evoke gs with the 
flag -sDEVICE=x11  on a .ps file?

it looks like to me your lilypond is trying to use the pdfwrite driver 
to make pdfs and failing there, whereas lilypond here seems to run ps2pdf.

back to studying....
good luck!
