  This is a (non PSTricks) question very frequently asked on other forms.
The simplest answer is: when using the dvips + ps2pdf route to generate the
PDF file, use the "-Ppdf -G0" switches for dvips. (Maurice Diamantini has not
the config.pdf file on his version of dvips, but on older versions of it the
"-Pwww" switch must be available and will have here the same behavior).

  I have not really understood this remark and still wait for more precise
elements and files.
