GUI for lpr: print files and configure printer-specific options
gpr is a graphical interface to lpr that provides for easy configuration
of printer-specific options. gpr interfaces with a PostScript
printer's PPD file to create a user-interface of configurable
options. Based upon user choice, the device-specific option code
is then inserted into the PostScript job and sent to the printer.
This can be used to tell the printer to duplex or staple the print
job, or tell it what paper tray to draw paper from.
NOTE: gpr will detect if the file to be print is postscript, and, if not,
it will call a2ps to preprocess it before sending it to ppdfilt and to lpr.
The upstream code at http://lpr.sf.net was not developed
This version of gpr is my personal development on
the file gpr_0.9.orig.tar.gz
as found in the download section of http://lpr.sf.net
It is quite different, and has many new features.
For this reason I now package it as a "upstream Debian"
(that is, no diff.gz).
One new feature is CUPS support. To enjoy it,simply add
This program provides a graphical front-end to the libppd library, enabling
users to configure printer-specific options for a particular job based upon
a printer's PPD file.
This program is a work in progress. As such, there are many features that
have not been implemented or are in much need of refinement.
To run gpr, simply type 'gpr' at the command-line. The file to print c
