If you start okular from the shell does it give any output?
Can you view PS files inside okular?

What about the command line output, is there any?
Comment 6 Gerry Gavigan 2009-08-24 19:47:56 UTC
sorry, I thought I'd mentioned this. I didn't understand your original question.  How do I generate command line output?
Comment 7 Gerry Gavigan 2009-08-24 20:04:20 UTC
Googled the answer.

When trying print preview 

Gerry@linux-l2mo:~/Documents> okular print.ps
sh: pstoedit: command not found
Comment 8 Albert Astals Cid 2009-08-24 21:09:45 UTC
Now that is strange, we don't call pstoedit anywhere in our code as far as i remember. Will recheck.
Comment 9 Albert Astals Cid 2009-08-24 22:37:24 UTC
Ok the problem is kde was deciding to use karbon instead okular for print previewing, we have solved this now, if you need it to work you can uninstall karbon or edit the okularGhostview.desktop found somewhere in your installation and add 
somewhere in it, thanks for reporting
