Well, I am making progress, at least it now compiles:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx,fancyhdr}
%\usepackage{pstricks}

\usepackage{pstcol, pst-text}

\begin{document}

%\definecolor{pink}{rgb}{1, .75, .8}
\begin{pspicture}(-3,-2.2)(3,2.2)
%\psset{linestyle=none}
\newcommand{\curly}[1]{{\fontfamily{pzc}%
\fontsize{17}{17}\itshape#1}}

\pstextpath[c]{
\psarcn(0,0){2}{180}{0}
{\curly{The Unseen University}}
}

\end{pspicture}

\end{document}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

This produces a semi circle fine, but the text stands alone and does
not sit on the arc.

In the documentation on CTAN it does explain that this can happen
with some drivers, but I do not know how to fix it.

Thanks a lot.
