I need to use the ghostscript inkcov device on my CentOS server. The device is said to be available on GS versions 9.05 and newer. However, yum install ghostscript installs version 8.70.

What is the easiest way to get the inkcov device to work?

It turned out that you can easily download a binary from the repository, unpack it on the file-system and then just update the PATH variable. After that the application works fine.
