I get error message in the subject when doing C-c C-c in a
buffer visiting a ps file and I cannot figure out why.

Emacs version is 24.3.1 

When doing C-c C-c I get a message syaing that no conversion to
images can be done since there are no tools to do that on my
system. In fact I am blind and only interested to text. Anyway
normally if you press y key text should be displayed using
first a conversion to pdf and then a conversion to text.

But process dies at first step as shown by the error message.

doc-view-pdftotext-program variable is set to ps2pdf (or
ps2pdf13) but both gives the same result. Even if the two
scripts ps2pdf and ps2pdf13 exist on my system and run
perfectly when launched from the console. 

Does anyone knows where this errror might come from or give me
indications to check more about the process that is meant to
die !
