Description: ps2epsi script (/usr/bin/ps2epsi) doesn't work if there is no in the same directory. This is from ps2epsi:

# Note, we expect '' to be in the same directory as 'ps2epsi'

Currently ps2epsi fails with following:

Error: /undefinedfilename in (/usr/bin/
Operand stack:

Execution stack:
%interp_exit .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- false 1 %stopped_push

Current allocation mode is local
Last OS error: No such file or directory

This is due to how ps2epsi calls There is commit in upstream:;a=commitdiff;h=c6166768c6e963b0fe28ccdb266629443e521381

to fix (I hope, I didn't check) this behaviour.

You can edit line 45 removing "$LIBDIR/ " from /usr/bin/ps2epsi and report if it solves you issue. Then I can apply this patch if that single fix is enough.

Yes, removing LIBDIR (i.e. making the line the same as in mentioned commit) allows to use ps2epsi.

There might be a problem with transparency if one use it in EPS file but this is known issue with recent ghostscript and should be fixed in other tools.
