KGhostView and Ghostscript problem

Hi all,

There was a message on this list in May about a problem with ghostscript after 
upgrading to KDE 3. The quote is below. I couldn't find any feedback on this 
and I am going through the same trouble when I try to view *.ps files in 
KGhostView. Can anyone give a clue?

I used to have print to pdf working very conveniently under kde2.2.2, but I
haven't tried it for quite a while and now it no longer works. I've since
upgraded to kde3 and I don't know if that's the problem or not, but I've also
had a similar problem with trying to use ghostscript in open office, and I've
had that problem since before I upgraded to kde3.
The problem is, that when i try to print to pdf, ghostscript says
Error: /invalidfont in findfont

Has anyone else come accross this or know how to solve it?
Any help would be very appreciated
