When trying to use pst-vectorian, I'm getting an error: GPL Ghostscript 9.54.0: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

Here's my code:




    asdf asdfjkajs;df


My pst-vectorian package is v. 41 (rev 60488). I'm using TexLive on Windows and compiling with Xelatex. I noticed that Ghostscript is currently at 9.55, but I can't figure out how to get the version in Texlive to update to that.

ADD: tlgs.win32 now updated to rev 60648 so now I'm getting version 9.55 in Latex but still the same error.

  • Have yuo tried using lualatex instead? Xelatex fails for me too on linux, but lualatex compiles

  • It does work for me in lualatex, thanks. I feel like there was a reason I was using Xelatex for something that I can't remember, though. I'll have to see how it affects the rest of my files.

  • I think if starting out, jump straight to lualatex, it is easier to work with in certain ways

After some help from Herbert Voss, adding -output-driver="xdvipdfmx -i dvipdfmx-unsafe.cfg -q -E" to my compilation xelatex command was a functional workaround.
