try gs -sDEVICE=vga filename
If you're version of gs hasn't got the vga device compiled in (for a list of available devices type gs -h) then recompile from source.

Using gsview. To print it, you can:

1. open the file using gsview, and there is a print button.
2. type "lpr yourps.ps" in your command line (if you have installed the lpr module). Please take a look at man page for "lpr" command for other arguments.

Thank you pkwan. When asking I forgot to say that I have no X. It seems gsview needs X, since it does not seem to work. Is there a way of viewing ps files without X?

Well, actually both comments I got were correct answers and I would like to thank everybody for their input. It was my fault that I did not specify in the first place that I did not have X. Meanwhile I have it and can read postcript files either way. Thanks to all of you!
