Here's wwwinstallgs.sh as requested.
(No idea why I didn't try renaming it by myself. Thanks for the hint.)

To use this GhostScript Installation for Imagick you need to run these two commands directly after wwwinstallgs.sh -all:
  • ln -s /opt/freeware/bin/gs /QOpenSys/usr/bin/gs
  • chown -h qsys /QOpenSys/usr/bin/gs
Sorry for missing this in this in the original post.

Hello Thom

At which step do you encounter the error? When calling setup.sh or calling wwwinstallgs.sh or somewhere else? Which tar file are you unzipping?

Best
