If you're telling xpm2ps to use in.m2p, that file has to exist somewhere.  The 
error message is telling you that it does not exist in the working directory 
(i.e., the directory where you're issuing the command), or the standard Gromacs 
library directory 

If you tell any Gromacs tool to use certain input, it has to exist; Gromacs 
isn't going to magically create all the proper files for you.
