I think this situation is quite worrying.

Mint is one of the most popular Linux distros and - if all Mint users have the same issues as mentioned above - there could be thousands (millions?) of people out there who cannot use a properly working version of Scribus. Or, to put it another way, there could be a very large number of users who have tried Scribus and, simply because it doesn't work properly on that distro, think that Scribus is worse than it actually is.

The expansion of the user base of Scribus could be seriously hampered by this. I realise that the Scribus team probably has very little influence on the distro packages but I can't see this as being a good situation to be in.

the PPA only needs some fiddling because you're not using the latest ubuntu.

PPA are created for ubuntu.

if they need fiddling on the latest ubuntu, please write a ticket in https://bugs.launchpad.net/~scribus and it's very likely that the issue will be timely fixed.

Hello to all,
I'm happy my 'conclusion' lead to some helpful suggestions  ;D
The experienced 'linux-user' I mentioned had a look for me and took the route of the ppa to try it out. It appears it needs some fiddling to make it work (something with different branches and editions of Scribus and Ubuntu etc) but it looks like the way to go and he is going to help me solving the situation. Thanks again for your input.
Regards
Ruud

if you see it on screen, it should make it into the pdf...

can you try to export your file to a pdf?

ciao marco

- don't use the print preview (except you know you need the features it provides... which is not the preview of the way your document will be printed).

- for the preview use "view > preview mode" instead.

- you will get a real preview by producing a pdf and looking at it with a good pdf viewer (if possible, the same one you will be using for printing).

this having been said:

- how are you setting the background color?

ciao

Hello guys...
I'm wondering why the background color of text frame doesn't appear in print preview. What I've done wrong ?
