Hi. If I am off-topic here (i.e, if there is a better
way to reach people interested in GSView on Debian than
by this list), then I hope someone will politely let me
Are others successfully using GSView under Debian?
I'm using it, but with problems. I got it by putting an RPM
file through Alien, and am using GhostScript libraries that
I've generated from the gs-afpl sources.
The major further hurdle is font management -- I haven't
sorted out the right way to register GSView with the Debian
font management programs, so my GSView is not finding out
about new fonts as I install them, and for some reason my
GSView doesn't act very nicely when it doesn't have needed fonts.
There is also the minor issue of arranging that GSView show
up properly in Debian and KDE menus. (Being from an RPM, maybe
it does show up in Gnome menus, I wouldn't know.)
Is there any hope that debian.scribus.net could have packages
for libgs (which would be a virtual package provided by
libgs-afpl and libgs-gpl) and for gsview?
