Well, I was following this thread. No offense meant - but the way you have
posed the questions show a definite lack of understanding of how these
things work, be it unpacking a tarball/how to run a shell script/the way you
describe the problem. Knowing/being ignorant about psfrag and being able to
find your way around comfortably doing these small things are entirely
different issues. I admire the patience and the extreme willingness to help
shown by Sir CV :)
Have a good day,
