Try running gs as
gs -sDEVICE=x11 filename.ps
to use x11 instead of the default svgalib.
You can also change the default by adding a line to /etc/profile to make
gs always use X11.
But first you need to check whether X11 is even supported by this gs.
Type gs --help for a list of supported devices.
The package contains a lot of documentation which explains these things,
but it took me a long time to understand this.
You can also use gs to print to many different printers, with a
complicated filter setup, or command line. There are some postings about
this from 2-3 years ago.
