fbgs — Poor man's PostScript/pdf viewer for the linux framebuffer console.

Synopsis

fbgs [-l|-xl|-xxl|-r n] [-c] [-b] [-p password] [--fp number] [--lp number] [fbi options] file

Description

Fbgs is a simple wrapper script which takes a PostScript (PS) or Portable Document Format (PDF) file as input, renders the pages using gs(1) - GhostScript - into a temporary directory and finally calls fbi(1) to display them.

Options

Fbgs understands all fbi(1) options (they are passed through), except: store, list, text, (no)comments, e, (no)edit, (no)backup, (no)preserve, (no)readahead, cachemem, blend.

Additionally you can specify:

-h, --help
Print usage info (overwrites fbi option).
-b, --bell
Emit a beep when the document is ready.
-c, --color
To render the pages in color (default is N&B).
-l
To get the pages rendered with 100 dpi (default is 75).
-xl
To get the pages rendered with 120 dpi.
-xxl
To get the pages rendered with 150 dpi.
-r n, --resolution n
To get the pages rendered with n dpi (overwrites fbi option).
-fp number, --firstpage number
Begins interpreting on the designated page of the document.
-lp number, --lastpage number
