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.
The Coherent PDF Command Line Toolkit provide a robust, professional set of tools for manipulating PDF files. The operations it offers includes split and merge, linearize, encrypt, scale, rotate, crop, bookmark, stamp, watermark, annotate, attach, and much more. It's based on the camlpdf library.
GtkPSproc is a GUI frontend for PSUTILS. It allows you to adjust all programs to your printer type (for example, always sending the pages in reverse order), to group two or more pages on a single sheet, to print booklets, and to easily print in double-sided fashion. It is designed to work from nearly all programs that call LPR, acting as an intermediary between the program and LPR, but it can work alone, too.
CreEPS is a collection of C++ classes that provide an easy-to-use interface for generating vector plots from within code. The drawings are stored as Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) files. It features all basic drawing elements, user-configurable fill types, and printf-style text output. Extensive documentation with many examples is included.
pdfTeX is an extended version of TeX that can create PDF directly from TeX source files and enhance the result of TeX typesetting with the help of PDF. When PDF output is not selected, pdfTeX produces normal DVI output, otherwise it produces PDF output that looks identical to the DVI output. An important aspect of this project is to investigate alternative justification algorithms, optionally making use of multiple master fonts.
Print Release System provides Web-based management of System V printing. It sits between Samba and the System V printing system. It ought to be relatively easy to make it work with other printing systems. After the job is printed, the user needs to consult a Web page that shows their queued jobs, which can be selected and released for printing (or canceled). A record is maintained for each job and, once the user reaches a quota, they can't release any further jobs to the printer.
Moonshiner is a graphical frontend for Ghostscript's PostScript-to-PDF converter. While Ghostscript (and its wrapper ps2pdf) is a very powerful instrument, it is quite challenging to use its parameters on the command line, especially if you often change the settings as to what kind of color conversion, image resampling, etc. you want Ghostscript to perform. While the author has never used Adobe's Distiller, and thus cannot really compare the two, Moonshiner (as the name suggests) is supposed to be a work-alike for the Linux world (at least GUI-wise, as the actual work is of course done by Ghostscript).
