Gnome GhostView.

GGV, the Gnome GhostView, is a Gnome PostScript document previewer. It can also preview PDFs, but as it is not a native PDF viewer, it does not take advantage of all the features of the PDF format. Users are strongly discouraged from using it as their PDF viewer - use GPdf instead!

GGV was developed using the gv codebase.
