Ghostview

http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/index.html
Lets Ghostscript users view a PDF or PostScript file using an X windows interface. Ghostview parses any known version of Adobe's Document Structuring Conventions. Page size and orientation are automatically determined from the Document Structuring Comments, but the user is able to override the values from the comments. Window size is set to the bounding box for Encapsulated PostScript figures. Default page size is letter and can be changes via Xresources or application defaults to A4 (or any other valid size). Scrollbars appear when neccessary. The program lets you view at four orientations (Portrait, Landscape, Seascape, and Upside-Down), restrict rendering to grayscale or monochrome, and mark pages for printing or saving. It can also popup zoom windows at printer resolution (one display dot = one printer dot).
