Fontlinge searches for font files, sorts them into folders by name and look and with human readable names, stores gathered font information in a database, generates previews and posters, finds and removes duplicates, and reunites PostScript font families. Also, Fontlinge has a Web interface to browse through your fonts. It shows detail previews and font info, provides font download as a tarball, and has the possibility to sort fonts.
Foomatic is the printer/driver database of Linuxprinting.org. The XML-based system integrates free software printer drivers with all common spoolers (CUPS, LPRng, LPD, GNUlpr, PPR, PDQ, CPS, etc.) in UNIX. It generates Adobe-compliant PPD files which, together with the foomatic-rip filter script, allow easy setup of print queues with access to all driver options. Foomatic ships with every major Linux distro and its Web site is used as a reference by vendors. It is an up-to-date and distribution-independent repository of printer and driver data, scripts, and utilities, accompanied by the wealth of knowledge, tips and tricks, solutions, and enlightenment provided by its newsgroups.
Foomatic-GUI includes a GNOME-based graphical user interface to simplify adding, configuring, and administering printers using the Foomatic printing system. Unlike other tools, it is designed to work with all spooling systems supported by Foomatic, including CUPS, LPRng, and PPR, and is intended to work on all Linux distributions.
GL2PS is a C library providing high quality vector output for any OpenGL application. It uses sorting algorithms capable of handling intersecting and stretched polygons, as well as non manifold objects. It provides advanced smooth shading and text rendering, culling of invisible primitives, mixed vector/bitmap output, and much more. It can currently create PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), Portable Document Format (PDF), and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files, as well as LaTeX files for the text fragments.
Trueprint is a program for printing source code in a variety of languages (C is the best supported) and other text files to postscript printers. It supports a wealth of options to support printing source code, such as diff-marking, line numbers, indentation levels, file and function indices, and many others.
GNU-barcode is meant to solve most needs in barcode creation with a conventional printer. It can create printouts for the conventional product-tagging standards: UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-13, EAN-8, ISBN, and several others. Output is generated as either Postscript, Encapsulated Postscript, or PCL (other back-ends may be added if needed). The package is released as both a library and a command-line frontend, so that you can include barcode-generation into your application.
Garbure is a collection of dedicated distributions. Each distribution provides carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation. The set of distributions forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution.
