Ghostview

https://www.gnu.org/software/ghostview/
An X11 user interface for ghostscript.

Ghostview is a full function user interface for ghostscript 2.4 and later.

Brief list of features:

 - Ghostview parses any known version of Adobe's Document Structuring
   Conventions.
 - Page size is automatically determined from the Document Structuring
   Comments. 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 changed via Xresources or
   application defaults file to A4 (or any other valid size) for our
   European friends.
 - Scrollbars appear when necessary.
 - Page orientation is automatically determined from the Document Structuring
   Comments. The user is able to override the values from the comments.
 - Ability to view at 4 orientations: Portrait, Landscape, Upside-down,
   and Seascape (for those who rotate landscape the other direction).
 - Ability to restrict rendering to grayscale or monochrome. (Requires
   ghostscript 2.6.1.)
 - Ability to mark pages for printing, or saving. (Good for people that
   printed a 100 page document and lost page 59 due to a printer jam.)
 - Can popup zoom windows at printer resolution 
   (1 display dot = 1 printer dot).

The Ghostview distribution includes a Ghostview Widget that people are encouraged to use in other programs.
