A2ps Heckert gnu.small.png
Program started as a text to PostScript converter, with pretty printing and all the expected features of this kind of program, but it can now handle other file types (PostScript, Texinfo, DVI, web-authoring, PDF, etc.) provided you have the necessary tools. While highly configurable, everything was designed so that even a novice can do complicated PostScript manipulations. For instance, the program can delegate the processing of some files to other filters (such as groff, texi2dvi, dvips, gzip,etc.) which allows a uniform treatment (n-up, page selection, duples, etc.) of heterogeneous files It also includes support for a wide range of programming languages, encodings (ISO Latins, Cyrillic, etc.), medias, and Native Language Support (NLS).

ADG: Automatic Drawing Generation
The ADG library (Automatic Drawing Generation) is a set of functions focused on automating the drawing of mechanical parts. It is not a CAD system but a library providing a non-interactive canvas where you can put common CAD entities such as paths, xatches and quotes, to create your technical drawings. The final result can be displayed inside a GTK+ widget or exported to any cairo available format, such as PostScript and PDF documents or PNG and SVG images.

Enscript Heckert gnu.small.png
GNU enscript converts ASCII files to PostScript and stores generated output to a file or sends it directly to the printer. It includes features for "pretty-printing" (language sensitive code highlighting) in several programming languages. It supports ten different input encodings, Adobe Font Metrics files, and user defined fancy headers. AFM files for the most common PostScript fonts are included in the distribution; the program itself can download PostScript fonts. Other features include language sensitive highlighting, N-up printing, inlined EPS images, comments, and the ability to change body color and font on the fly.

Gnome Ghostview is a PostScript document viewer. Features include gconf-based configuration, display of the last visible area when scrolling, coordinate display and an all-new bonobo control that integrates with the Nautilus file manager. The package has been partially or completely translated into more than thirty languages.
This project was a GNU package. It has since been decommissioned and is no longer developed.

GNU ghostscript Heckert gnu.small.png
An interpreter for the Postscript language and the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), a set of C procedures (the Ghostscript lib) that implements the graphics capabilities that appear as primitive operations in the Postscript language and in PDF, and a set of utility programs that include the ability to convert PostScript to PDF. Currently it supports PostScript level 3 and PDF versions 1.0 through 1.6.

GNU trueprint Heckert gnu.small.png
GNU Trueprint takes C source files and other text files and prints them on PostScript printers. It is intended to be used by programmers; therefore, it includes features like diff-marking, indentation count, function and file indices, and many others that are useful when printing source code. It currently supports C and has more limited support for other languages, including C++, Java, and Perl.

Gcover is application for GNOME to create CD Covers. This is not a Front-End.

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).

Gimp-Print is a suite of printer drivers that may be used with most common *NIX print spooling systems, including CUPS, lpr, LPRng, or others. These drivers provide high quality printing for *NIX and GNU systems, and can be used for many of the most demanding printing tasks. See for a full list of supported printers.

'gnome-print' is an API that implements the Postscript imaging model. applications. There are two extensions to the Postscript imaging model support gnome-print: Alpha channel support and anti-aliasing. 'gnome-print' includes a rasterizing engine that transforms the requests into bitmaps for native drivers. Various drivers are provided underneath this API; the current version of GNOME print ships with a Postscript driver, a PDf driver, a metafile driver used mostly for compound documents, and a generic bitmap driver. Other featrues include a Gtk+ based printer dialog box that can be customized by apps, and a consisten print preview system.
