As far as I understand, Leopard is using a different X server than  
Tiger, and the one that shipped with the Leopard install disks has  
some problems. The most recent and actively developed version of the  
X server for Leopard is found here:

I hope Martin Costabel, a great contributor to Apple's X11 mailing  
list and also a regular here, can brief us about this.

I don't know if you will succeed installing Ghostview from the i- 
Package, given that i-Installer probably will be looking for  
something that has changed in Leopard's X11.


Best,

Axel
