OpenOffice uses other applications (like ImageMagick's convert) to
generate previews of ps images. If you are on windows, there is an non-R

other convert and no image shows up (or prints). I have the same issue.
It should be fixable by putting ImageMagick earlier in the path, but I
have not tried this yet.
