Hi sinthia,

My first guess, do you have ghostscript installed and scribus pointed to it?  Also which OS are you using?

Cheers!

if you don't have ghostscript installed, here are some very minimal instruction for installing it:

just ask if they are not clear enough...

According to this it looks like it is a known issue and the problem is with ghostscript 9.22.  Please see if you can install a previous version or a beta version of ghostscript to see if that helps.
