Error running pstoedit

Hi, I got a lot of error message after installation, finally, after much 
hard work, some of them disappeared. However, I still have an error message 
with pstoedit in my config/info. To give you an overall picture about what I 
have done, i pasted all info here. Also, when i tried to type in the display 
mode, I got another error when i clicked 'make bitmap'. The error message 
said "Error:tex2bmp: shell command failed for <ghostcript> execution". I 
would really appreciate it if you can help me to figure out what the problem
