Need help on ps2pdf

Hi,

Iam trying to convert a .ps file to pdf in unix.

iam using the command like

ps2pdf my_file.ps my_file.pdf

it is working in server1. if i execute the same in another (server2), its not working..
So i have downloaded the ps files
(ps2pdf,ps2pdfwr,ps2pdf14,ps2pdf13,ps2pdf12,gs ) into my local dir and running the ps2pdf command.. even its not working in server2

it gives me the below error
------------------------------------------------
(191)==> ps2pdf my_file.ps my_file.pdf
ps2pdfwr: gs: Execute permission denied.
------------------------------------------------

I have even given 777 permissions to all the files i have downloaded into my local dir..

Can some one tell if iam doing any wrong.....

Regards,
Pradeep G

the commands
Code:
ps2pdfwr or gs

has no Execute permission denied.

Find them out, and check the files permission.
