Some time ago (actually, a few years ago) I have experienced the same problem, 
also using Linux box and Kile for the editor.  On this mailing list I got 
some advice from Prof ShigeruTekeno on this mailing list.  Ah, I was going to 
say that  I don't remember what it was, but I just found his email:

I saw your page:


If the problem you said is the black bottom bar in the image, 
please try to remove '-Ppdf' option from the variable $DVIPSOPT 
defined in your l2hconf.pm file.

I followed the advice and all came apples!  Of course, in the changing world 
of Linux it may have changed - I used suse xx.x at the time (now 
openSUSE10.3), but do not remember more details.

I might add that I am ignorant of Perl and thus of l2h.
