NAME

kghostview − KDE PS/PDF Viewer

SYNOPSIS

kghostview [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [URL]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the KGhostView KDE Application. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

KGhostView displays and prints PostScript (.ps, .eps) and Portable Document Format (.pdf) files. It a port to KDE of Tim Theisen’s Ghostview program which uses Alladin Ghostscript to view documents prepared in Adobe’s PostScript page description language. PostScript is the major page description language for printing on UNIX(rg systems and this application can be used to preview material intended for printing or for reading documents online.

You can use KGhostView with all recent versions of Ghostscript. Newer versions offer much improved performance which you can take advantage of with KGhostView.

If a document does not conform to the Adobe document structuring convention the functionality of the viewer is limited. For example, if there is no table of contents, skipping around the document and marking pages is not possible.

This program is part of the official KDE graphics module.
