foo2hbpl is an open source printer driver for printers that use the HBPL version 2 wire protocol for their print data, such as the Dell 1355, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM205, or the Xerox WorkCentre 6015. These printers are often erroneously referred to as winprinters or GDI printers. However, Microsoft GDI only mandates the API between an application and the printer driver, not the protocol on the wire between the printer driver and the printer. In fact, HBPL printers are raster printers that happen to use a very efficient wire protocol. HBPL is just one of many wire protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript, PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc. This driver uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are five major components to the foo2hbpl printer driver: foo2hbpl2 (the page image to protocol conversion engine of the driver); foo2hbpl2-wrapper (a shell script (compatible with foomatic) that runs ghostscript and foo2hbpl in a pipeline); icc2ps (converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the users Postscript program); foomatic-db (foomatic database entries that describe the supported printers and their options so that printer spoolers know how to access the printer using foo2hbpl2-wrapper); and hbpldecode (a tool for developers to inspect HBPL streams).
PrinterSetup is a flexible printer setup system. It is tailored to institutions with more than 20 deployed printers. It is designed to work with CUPS on Mac OS X. PrinterSetup is a component of PrintingWorks, a print accounting solution. There is limited documentation. Apple package deployment requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and is untested on earlier versions. Apple package development requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later and Xcode 3.0 or later.
foo2hiperc is a printer driver for printers that use the HIPERC wire protocol for their print data, such as the Oki C3400n and the Oki C5500n. It uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are five major components: foo2hiperc (the page image to protocol conversion engine of the driver); foo2hiperc-wrapper (runs ghostscript and foo2hiperc in a pipeline); icc2ps (converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the user's Postscript program); foomatic-db (foomatic database entries that describe the supported printers and their options so that printer spoolers know how to access the printer using foo2hiperc-wrapper); and hipercdecode (a tool for developers to inspect HIPERC streams).
make_cd_label is a script that helps create stickers for CDs. It is intended to be integrated with your backup scripts, but can also make stickers for audio CDs using CDDB and disc-cover. The output is an XML file that can be read into glabels and then edited or printed. It uses Memorex or Avery CD label stickers.
Psdfposter can be used to create a large poster by building it from multple pages and/or printing it on large media. It expects as input a PS or a PDF file, printing on a single page. The output is again a PS or PDF file, which may contain multiple pages that together build the poster. The input page will be scaled to obtain the desired size. It is much like poster for Postscript files, but works with PS and PDF, since sometimes pspdfposter does not like your PS files. Psdfposter is a bash script with a Zenity GUI, and requires pspdftool.
TYM (Typo Manager) is software for managing fonts in formats like .OTF (OpenType), .TTF (TrueType), and .PFA/.PFB (Typo1). It allows you to add or "link" fonts, activate or deactivate them, and delete them. It also handles the "group font" function and stores several fonts inside one file.
tex-fontconfig is a script to create, with little extra information, all files necessary to make Type1 and TT fonts available in TeX/LaTeX. It can be run in interactive or non-interactive mode, and the generated files can be copied right into a texmf directory or used to build a Debian package.
