pspresent - fullscreen PostScript presentation tool
pspresent [options] file.ps
pspresent is a tool that displays PostScript slides in fullscreen, for giving presentations. Navigation is simple, and the display is double-buffered for seamless transitions between slides. The actual rendering is done in the background using Ghostscript.
- Show summary of options.
- Do not override window manager. pspresent will attempt to disable decorations and resize itself to the size of the screen, but will otherwise co-operate with your window manager (which may mean that it is not truly fullscreen).
- Limit pspresent to only use the given head on a XINERAMA display.
- -O Portrait|Landscape|Upside-Down|Seascape
- Override orientation.
- Loop mode; go to start of document when at end, and vice versa.
- Automatic slideshow mode. The delay is optional, the default value is 20 seconds.
- Automatic slideshow mode. The file contains one integer value per line, corresponding to the delay between the current slide and the next one. You must put a value for each page of your document (count overlays, too). A value of 0 will disable the timer for the current slide.
The following keys can be used from within pspresent to navigate the slides. If Shift is depressed, then only the last page of each series of overlays is shown (an overlay set is identified as a series of pages with the same logical page number).
- page down
- right arrow
- down arrow
- Move to the next slide. If Shift is depressed, skips overlays.
- page up
- left arrow
- up arrow
- Move to the previous slide. If Shift is depressed, skips overlays.
- Warp to the start of the presentation.
- Warp to the end of the preesentation.
- enter Warp to slide number.
- Quit the program.
The mouse buttons can also be used to navigate through a presentation.
- left button
- Move to the next slide.
- middle button
- Quit the program.
- right button
- Move to the previous slide.
If Shift is used together together with the navigation keys or buttons, then only the last page of each series of overlays is shown (an overlay set is identified as a series of pages with the same logical page number).
