hi olibrius

does it matter if you're working with scribus1.4.7 or 1.5.4?
(i just try to find a 'point of attack' for a problem i don't know much about…)

I'm using 1.4.7, but I can try the 1.5.4 beta

yes, i've read your 11H44 post and i retained that scribus takes too long to start.

10 minutes or 1.5 hours does not matter.

it's too long. this is what matters.

can i really suggest you to bring your computer to some skilled person in your neighborhood and get her to fix it?
if you're correctly reporting what happens on your computer, this is a problem i've not seen reported yet.
you will probably need the help of a specialist who can access your computer. you can show her this thread so that she can get some hint what to look at (if she does not know much about scribus).

it might be a hardware problem. a wrong icc profile (you should temporary remove all of the them), a font problem... or some other problem that relates to your computer or the software installed on your machine.

just one thing: stop waiting for one+ hour for scribus to start.
except that you have to get scribus to go through the whole start process once and quit it in a clean way once. so that the new settings are 100% saved.
but even then... scribus should not take 1 1/2 hour to start. really.

without new information, i think i'm done with this thread.
there is not much more i can tell you.

the best option for a fast solution is to find a different computer, install scribus on it and move your project there, collected for output in your current scribus (it will probably take hours to complete... but then you migrated away).
... but since i don't see you, i don't even know if using a different computer is an option for you.
one more reason why, you need local help.

warning: 1.5.4 is a development version and not all features are stable!

but it's very usable and many things are better and more stable than in 1.4.
as a rule of thumb, if you use the same features as you were using in 1.4 you should be fine.

from what you have written until now, you should now finish your urgent project in 1.5 and then get your 1.4 fixed and continue your work with it.

there must be a reason why scribus 1.4 does not work for your anymore... and we could not find out what it is...

good luck with your project!
