Olga, you should use pst-dbicons from CTAN.

$ kpsexpand '$TEXMFHOME'

$ kpsexpand '$TEXMFLOCAL'

you get your directories of the TeX-installation. Above my own ones.
Your files should go into
$TEXMFHOME/tex/...  or $TEXMFLOCAL/tex/...

When running texhash you can also see the directories where
the file data base is updated
