Printruler collects the pdfs that you print with cups-pdf and let\'s you edit them before printing.
Printruler tries to reproduce some of the functionality of fineprint under windows.

This was a semester project at the college of engeneering and architecture of fribourg

this app needs an huge install of Qt libs (at least version 4.3) I'm currently trying to make a puppy pet package with minimum required dependencies

downloaded binary printruler-r14-1.13.i586.rpm from

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Printing/openSUSE_Factory/repodata/repoview/printruler-0-r14-1.13.html

added 3-4 core needed libs from qt4 package, plus ps2ps2 from ghostscript utils
- ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/ftp.altlinux.ru/pub/distributions/ALTLinux/Sisyphus/files/i586/RPMS/ghostscript-utils-8.60-alt1.i586.rpm

programs run, but some features (e.g. check boxes are missing) see 2nd image that shows original app




messages showed in console are these:
Code:
printruler: /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/libQtGui.so.4)
QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: No such file or directory
QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /root/PDF/

I'll further investigate to view if it is possible to make a pet package with only minimum required dependencies

That looks cool - kind of a mix of features of pdfedit and CUPS multi-page features and stuff, like you can use from gtklp. So I think it is essentially a pdf editor that uses just Ghostscript - something I've thought for a long time should be easy to do.
The approach of collecting print jobs seems kind of weird - why not make a simple pdfedit Smile

People might need to check out the manual to get a better idea of what it does:

You might find pdfshuffler more promising.

I've made an 11MB .sfs to make it easy to install pdfshuffler and its dependencies - python, pygtk etc. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45826
