freetype FreeType 2 is a software font engine that is designed to be small, efficient, highly customizable, and portable while capable of producing high-quality output (glyph images). It can be used in graphics libraries, display servers, font conversion tools, text image generation tools, and many other products as well.
Gdk-Pixbuf The Gdk Pixbuf is a toolkit for image loading and pixel buffer manipulation. It is used by GTK+ 2 and GTK+ 3 to load and manipulate images. In the past it was distributed as part of GTK+ 2 but it was split off into a separate package in preparation for the change to GTK+ 3.
gettext GNU `gettext' is an important step for the GNU Translation Project, as it is an asset on which we may build many other steps. This package offers to programmers, translators, and even users, a well integrated set of tools and documentation
GLib GLib is one of the base libraries of the GTK+ project
gnuplot Portable interactive, function plotting utility
HarfBuzz HarfBuzz is an OpenType text shaping engine.
JasPer The JasPer Project is an open-source initiative to provide a free software-based reference implementation of the codec specified in the JPEG-2000 Part-1 standard.
jbigkit JBIG-KIT is a software implementation of the JBIG1 data compression standard (ITU-T T.82), which was designed for bi-level image data, such as scanned documents.
libGLU The OpenGL Utility Library (GLU) is a computer graphics library for OpenGL.
matplotlib matplotlib is a python 2D plotting library which produces publication quality figures in a variety of hardcopy formats and interactive environments across platforms. matplotlib can be used in python scripts, the python and ipython shell, web application servers, and six graphical user interface toolkits.
Mesa Mesa is an open-source implementation of the OpenGL specification - a system for rendering interactive 3D graphics.
OVITO OVITO is a scientific visualization and analysis software for atomistic and particle simulation data.
Pango Pango is a library for laying out and rendering of text, with an emphasis on internationalization. Pango can be used anywhere that text layout is needed, though most of the work on Pango so far has been done in the context of the GTK+ widget toolkit. Pango forms the core of text and font handling for GTK+-2.x.
Pillow Pillow is the 'friendly PIL fork' by Alex Clark and Contributors. PIL is the Python Imaging Library by Fredrik Lundh and Contributors.
pixman Pixman is a low-level software library for pixel manipulation, providing features such as image compositing and trapezoid rasterization. Important users of pixman are the cairo graphics library and the X server.
Tk Tk is an open source, cross-platform widget toolchain that provides a library of basic elements for building a graphical user interface (GUI) in many different programming languages.
VTK The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) is an open-source, freely available software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing and visualization. VTK consists of a C++ class library and several interpreted interface layers including Tcl/Tk, Java, and Python. VTK supports a wide variety of visualization algorithms including: scalar, vector, tensor, texture, and volumetric methods; and advanced modeling techniques such as: implicit modeling, polygon reduction, mesh smoothing, cutting, contouring, and Delaunay triangulation.
X11 The X Window System (X11) is a windowing system for bitmap displays
