I use TeXlive on Debian Wheezy. I have psgo.sty installed (in texlive-games). I have downloaded psgomanual.tex.

After I enter the command latex psgomanual.tex I get a .dvi file. With lots of warnings of the form:

Underfull \hbox (badness 10000) in paragraph at lines 345--346
[]|\OT1/cmtt/m/n/10 \stone[\markma]\OMS/cmsy/m/n/10 f\OT1/cmtt/m/n/10 black\OMS
/cmsy/m/n/10 gf\OT1/cmtt/m/n/10 b\OMS/cmsy/m/n/10 gf\OT1/cmtt/m/n/10 2\OMS/cmsy
/m/n/10 g

The writing's in the .dvi file are all ok, but instead of the Go board diagrams there is something like the image below. What should I do?

    Could you submit the minimal working example of your code? – kiss my armpit Sep 5 '13 at 14:13
  • @christoph. thanks. it works. I thought there is some serious problem. – Ramin Asadi Sep 5 '13 at 14:18

I think this is one of the two most frequent errors done with PSTricks packages. If you use PSTricks (Postscript Tricks), you cannot view the dvi output, but must look at the ps or pdf output. To generate the output, there are several ways, which one you use depends on your workflow, packages etc.:


Run the document with xelatex, it does the conversion process automatically.
