Installation and Setup / Re: The RPM repo with packages for 1.5.4 Link not active
« Last post by a.l.e on October 03, 2018, 03:14:34 pm »
the link you have posted is very slow for me, but finally shows the right page.

that is peter linnell's private repository with the development version of scribus.
he is an open suse contributor and scribus team member.

on the other side, it's possible that the official open suse repository only has the stable scribus version...

Installation and Setup / The RPM repo with packages for 1.5.4 Link not active

1. This link (http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mrdocs:/scribus-15.x/) on the downloads page does not work

2. When this URL link is copied and pasted into a browser, it takes the user to the generic RPM repo page for opensuse, not to one for all RPM based distros, nor specifically to 1.5.4.

3. Further, a search on the page for Scribus only leads to 1.4.7.

Just thought everyone should know.

Thanks very much for your reply Nermander. There are some things for me to consider. I have installed Ghostscript but can you please point me in the right direction to check out how to use this to possibly reduce the file size.
Thanks, Ray

but scribus 1.4 can load a PDF in an image frame.
and it even has an experimental feature for keeping the original PDF in the resulting PDF (without rasterizing it)

if you're on mac os, this feature is broken in scribus 1.4.5 and newer versions. (you'll need scribus 1.4.4 or 1.5.x…)

scribus 1.4 cannot import a pdf.

but scribus 1.4 can load a PDF in an image frame.
and it even has an experimental feature for keeping the original PDF in the resulting PDF (without rasterizing it)

scribus 1.5 can load a PDF in an image frame (as scribus 1.4 can) and, on top of it, can (try to) import a PDF as native objects (warning: it outlies your text...)

so, if you want to simply add your content on top of a pdf, you don't technically need 1.5.

Hi there,

Why is 1.5.4 required if you "need to be able to import a PDF document" and add your own content over the top?

Mike.

Scribus has been targeted towards printing, where the size of the PDF is less important than the quality of the publication.

Some things to consider are:

- Are you embedding fonts? Fonts can be 10-15 MB each.
- Do you have a lot of vector graphics?
- Do you downsample images? For printing you probably want 300 PPI, but for reading on the screen you can likely get away with 75 PPI.

I think there are several pages in the Scribus Wiki on the topic too.

Some people like to run the PDF through for example Ghostscript to reduce the file size.

 It's okay.  I got it.  Used duckduck, maybe that helped and a vpn, maybe that helped, I don't know, between the two of them I got both the 64 bit and 32 bit windows versions.

 Thanks for the help.

both firefox and chromium on my computer show me the https:// page linked above.

... latest debian testin packages... so there might be a difference in the latest programs you can download from mozilla or google...

if it's not the case, it's an issue local to your computer or is caused by some trafficking of packets on your network (firewall, router, vpn, ...)
