Use drag&drop or copy&paste from file managers to print files

Project description

Druwez is a GTK based graphical printing tool written in Python.

With Druwez you can use drag & drop or the clipboard to print multiple files at once from the file manager without opening any dedicated applications.

You can optionally save print jobs to print them later (again). Only the file names but not the file content are saved in that case so you don’t need much disk space.

Druwez itself can handle PDF, PNG, JPEG and SVG files. To print other file formats you can define converters. A converter is a shell command that reads a file and writes PDF, PNG, JPEG or SVG data to standard output. For each converter you define shell patters for the files it should convert.

By default Druwez use unoconv as converter for various office file formats and Ghostscript for PostScript files.

Druwez works on Linux and other Unix and Unix-like operating systems.

  • GTK >= 3.20

The following programs are used by the default configuration as converters. You can use Druwez without them if you don’t need to print those file types or want to define your own converters.

  • unoconv is used by default as converter for various office file format

  • Ghostscript is used by default as

    converter for Posrscript files

Debian-based distros

On Debian-based distros Druwez needs the following packages:

python3-gi, python3-pkg-resources, gir1.2-glib-2.0, gir1.2-gtk-3.0, gir1.2-gdkpixbuf-2.0, gir1.2-poppler-0.18

If you install the .deb package this packages will be automatically installed if needed.
