Install PSUtils by running the following commands:
cat Makefile.unix | sed -e 's/\/usr\/local/\/usr/g' > Makefile && make && make install
cat ... | sed ...: This command creates a Makefile that installs the program to the /usr prefix instead of the /usr/local prefix.
The PSUtils package contains psbook, psselect, pstops psnup, psresize, epsffit, getafm, showchar, fixdlsrps, fixfmps, fixmacps, fixpsditps , fixpspps, fixscribeps, fixtpps, fixwfwps, fixwpps, fixwwps, extractres, includeres and psmerge.
Sometimes psnup and other utilities from this package produce PostScript files that don't conform to Adobe's DSC standard. CUPS may print them incorrectly. On the other hand, CUPS has builtin replacements for most commands from this package. For example, to print a document 2-up, you will issue this command:
lp -o number-up=2 [filename]
