       "KDEPrint has a preview window which I presume uses 
        GhostScript to render what it displays."

Not entirely correct. KDEPrint does not *have* a preview window. It *uses* s.th. to preview the printjob. And that something can be 2 different things:

 * the application that is set up on the user's system as the default for 
   handline mime type "application/postscript" (that is, for most users,
   kghostview); but in case a user has changed that in his preferences, it
   is the changed app...  (*)
 * an external application that may be "hardcoded" by the user for KDEPrint
   previews (I often also use "gv", esp. when debugging problems).

The first is used automatically, if no user-defined preference for KDEPrint is found. The second one is the user-defined preference (it gets stored as "PreviewCommand" in $(kde-config --localprefix)/share/config/kdeprintrc)
