>> I would imagine this is because you are using the pdfLaTeX command in TeXworks. pstricks only works when output is directed to a postscript (.ps) file, not a pdf file. This involves setting up a typesetting command that executes the following steps:
>> - Runs latex on your .tex file (instead of pdflatex)
>> - Runs dvips on the resulting .dvi file
>> - Runs ps2pdf on the resulting .ps file
>> This will involve setting up three new commands in the TeXworks menu:
>> Preferences -> Typesetting
>> You could probably reduce this to one command by writing a batch file/shell script that invokes each program in order.
In a recent thread <http://tug.org/pipermail/texworks/2009q4/001903.html> a script was posted for MikTeX on Windows. This can probably be adapted to your setup (I can't say more unfortunately, I'm using Mac OS X and know next to nothing about Windows).
Hope this helps,
