ESP Ghostscript 7.07.1: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

dvips: Problems with file writing; probably disk full.


I read about patch fixes etc. for these kinds of problems, however this is an on-line submission, so I can't really update their Ghostscript etc. :s

By MRM, do you mean Wiley ISMRM? – Konrad Rudolph Jul 7 '11 at 12:58
Yes, exactly :) – WtFudgE Jul 7 '11 at 13:15

Solved my problem,

it was due to an unknown font in an eps file. I embedded the font in the image and the error was no more.

Indeed, missing fonts in embedded vector images are a source of trouble! – Martin Scharrer Jul 7 '11 at 14:59

I encountered exactly the same problem and I used following command to embed the fonts with GhostScript

gs -dNOPAUSE -dNOCACHE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=epswrite -sOutputFile=output.eps input.eps
