    2649quickly in one program vs the other. Overall, we feel that Lucide has a more
    2750OS/2-like - or native - feel to its interface, and is better suited to the
    28 operating system. The choice is left entirely to the user as to which is
     51operating system. Lucide also supports native OS2 printer while qPDFView
     52requires CUPS The choice is left entirely to the user as to which is
    2953better suited to his needs.

    107 GBM (Generalised Bitmap Module) is a library for handling many different bitmap
    108 file formats. It comes with a set of useful command line tools for doing bitmap
    109 manipulations and format conversion. In this version BMP, JPG, JP2, PNG, TIF,
    110 PBM, PGM, PPM, PNM, XPM, JBG and RAW support is additionally included.

    113 
    114 N.B.: If using GBM to render JPG images, it is advised to disable the JPG
    115 plugin which ships with Lucide to avoid conflicts (see ticket #236). This may
    116 be accomplished by simply renaming lujpeg.dll in the Lucide program directory
    117 to lujpeg.dl_ when Lucide is not running. To re-enable the included JPG plugin,
    118 simply rename the file to its original name and start Lucide.
