I have this simple LaTeX file:

colorlinks=true,%         hyperlinks will be black
pdfborderstyle={/S/U/W 1}% border style with underline of width 1pt

When I'm trying to get a pdf linked document with:

latex hello.tex
latex hello.tex
dvips hello.dvi
pstopdf hello.ps

I have a pdf file with blue links, but the link does not work. I had to use pstopdf instead of ps2pdf because the command is not available in my system (TeXLive 2014).

enter image description here

What might be wrong?

I need to use the latex/dvips/pstopdf command path, as I need to compile a TeX code from https://github.com/daly/literateclojure ; otherwise I get compilation errors.

    Just a thought: have you tried ps2pdf instead of pstopdf?

    @tohecz: I couldn't find ps2pdf which I was supposed to use from the original make file, I revised my question.

  • At which system you are? How did you install TL2014? Because ps2pdf should be installed by TL.

  • @tohecz: I use TL2014 on Mac OS X, but I can't find ps2pdf, I have pstopdf though.

The problem was that I used pstopdf, not ps2pdf. It seems like that TL2014 distribution does not have ps2pdf, so I had to install ps2pdf with ghostscript from brew for Mac OS X.

brew install ghostscript
