Binary package “ipe” in ubuntu groovy

drawing editor for creating figures in PDF or PS formats

 Ipe supports making small figures for inclusion into LaTeX
 documents as well as making multi-page PDF presentations
 Ipe's main features are:
  * Entry of text as LaTeX source code. This makes it easy to enter
    mathematical expressions, and to reuse the LaTeX-macros of the main
    document. In the display text is displayed as it will appear in
    the figure.
  * Produces pure Postscript/PDF, including the text. Ipe converts the
    LaTeX-source to PDF or Postscript when the file is saved.
  * It is easy to align objects with respect to each other (for
    instance, to place a point on the intersection of two lines, or to
    draw a circle through three given points) using various snapping
    modes.
  * Users can provide ipelets (Ipe plug-ins) to add functionality to
    Ipe. This way, Ipe can be extended for each task at hand.
  * The text model is based on Unicode, and has been tested with Korean,
     Chinese, and Japanese.
 .
 Package lua5.3 is recommended if using Ipe with LaTeX.
 .
 Package texlive-latex-recommended enables unicode text entry (for
 accented characters).
