Follow-up Comment #5, bug #63280 (project gv):

I meant to show how many seconds the `time` command returned.

Your gs installation has a strange search path with items like
`/usr/share/ghostscript/9.53.3/Resource/Font//usr/share/ghostsc.` Check if you
set any environment variables with `set | grep GS_` or if you built gs from
source, check if you customized the build.

I think that the errors that I had were from gs 10, and your file might be ok.
Is it OK if I pass that file to the gs developers in a bug report?

gv works from postscript. When it gets a pdf, it runs the pdf through pdf2dsc
to find the list of pages and pdf2ps to convert it to postscript. You can see
the commands if you start gv and then on the menu bar at the top, click on
`State -> Ghostscript Options...` If your gs search path is an indication of a
messed up gs installation, maybe some of the gs parts that gv uses aren't
installed correctly.

Do other multi-page pdf files work in gv for you?
