That's good to hear.

Did you reinstall LaTeX2HTML, with the latest development version
from  www.latex2html.org ?
That has the correct pstoimg and installation script which copes
with the different versions of netpbm .

Alternatively, the only significant differences to earlier versions
are easily editable by hand. A message that I posted last week
explains what is needed.

Below I see part of  images.log .
Can you please send the corresponding chunk of  images.tex
It should be roughly 10 lines preceding and including line 145.

Cheers,
