Today’s Programming Hell

Today I am whimpering and crying while trying to resolve this lovely error message: "GPL Ghostscript 8.54: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1" Right now I think that either ImageMagick is not creating the eps or ps files in a way that Ghostscript likes or that I am missing some fonts. Possibly, I need to add some steps to building the eps file with ImageMagick. Of course it could be something mundanely stupid like not having the path set.

Update! A clue! A clue! Found while trying eps2eps

Update: I bet this is going to help: wget
