I've recently done a fresh install of Kubuntu 9.10 (previous was 6.0.6) and gv is now a step slower. I mostly use gv to view .ps files I create. Each file can have upwards of 100s of pages. In the past I could page forward or back very quickly, with the window refreshing instantly. It now takes ~0.5 sec to refresh the window. The last time something like this happened it was the anti-alias setting. I'm hopeful there might be a similarly easy fix this time.
Sorry for the late answer. I have no real idea (as I assume that anti-alias is turned off).

Try to test calling "gs" directly:

gs -sDEVICE=x11 -dSAFER /usr/share/cups/data/testprint.ps

Is it faster? (Note: Press return to switch to new page).

If it is faster, compare the options GNU gv uses to call gs (with "ps xaww", you can check them while GNU gv is running). In this case, changes are great that you can adjust GNU gv to use this faster setting.

If not, it's a problem of ghostscript.
