specify background

Have tried the command

display -background white filename.eps

but the resultant image remains unchanged (a line graph with a default tiled black-grey background)

How to view with white background?

The EPS file is probably drawing its own background.

Also that is not a good way of viewing EPS files which is a vector image (ImageMgaick handles Raster (pixel array) images)

Better way of view is with a proper postscript viewer.
