Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, they'll be marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). I think we will need a full minimal working example (MWE) including your preamble. –  Joseph Wright Aug 26 '12 at 15:54
It is not related to your problem but it is worth mentioning that it is recommended to use \centering instead of \begin{center}...\end{center}. –  I am who I say I am Aug 26 '12 at 16:00
Was there an error message? –  LarsH Aug 7 '13 at 17:27

It is the typical error message when using pdflatex with PSTricks.

Run the document with xelatex or use the sequence latex->dvips->ps2pdf (which is often only one click in a GUI). See also FDE no 4 (Frequently Done Error) at http://PSTricks.tug.org

Just click the grey tick mark beneath the score on the answer you want to accept. The tick mark will turn green. That means the answer is accepted and everyone will know that the problem has been solved. –  Aneesh Karthik C Oct 3 '13 at 6:30
