`gs-aladdin-5.03': I've packaged it.
I needed to read a manual yesterday, and after upgrading to xlib6g,
was unable to run `gv' or `gs' to do so. So, I grabbed the source to
`gv' and rebuilt it. That worked fine, after one tiny fix. But it
cannot run without `gs'.
I ftp'd Aladdin GhostScript 5.03, (which took forever) and grabbed
the source .diff that goes with gs-aladdin-4.03, and went to work on
building a package so I can read that GWM manual.
I now have an installable and running package ready. I am prepared to
make a non-maintainer release, if that is OK with the current
maintainer of gs-aladdin. Here's the control file from the
debian/tmp/DEBIAN directory. The `Depends' are accurate, afaict.
Depends: libc6, libjpeg6a, libpng0g, svgalibg1 | svgalib-dummyg1, xlib6g (>= 3.3-5), zlib1g, libpaper (>=1.0-1)
Recommends: gsfonts (>=4.01-3)
Conflicts: gs, gs_x, gs_svga, gs_both
Provides: gs, gs_x, gs_svga, gs_both, postscript-viewer
Maintainer: Karl M. Hegbloom <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Description: Postscript interpreter with X11 and svgalib preview support.
This version is Aladdin copy right, not GNU copyleft, see
Ghostscript is used for postscript preview and printing. Usually as
a back-end to a program such as ghostview, it can display postscript
documents in an X11 environment. It can also use the Linux svga
library to display documents graphically on the Linux console.
Furthermore, it can render postscript files as graphics to be printed
on non-postscript printers. Supported printers include common
dot-matrix, inkjet and laser models.
