I am using oowriter to just type a couple lines,
export that as PDF, use ghostscript to convert to tiff
then view with xview and my page is all black.

I use the command to convert to tiff.
gs -q -sDEVICE=tiffg3 -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -r204x196 -dNOPAUSE 
-sOutputFile=/tmp/faxme.g3 -- file.pdf
xview /tmp/faxme.g3
The resulting file size is 9788 for faxme.g3

Have I done something wrong? I would have thought
that would work.

Thanks, for any suggestions.
