PDF Generation / Strange error, PDF and image different
« Last post by founder on November 03, 2021, 07:25:10 pm »
I have a strange difference at the output between PDF and image.
The PDF shows only parts of the arrows.

Attached all3 3 files.

Working on Scribus 1.5.5 and Ubuntu 20.04.3

No, it is a vector graphic from Affinity Designer, exported to the *.SVG format. I don't have enough knowledge about the *.SVG format, but I remember that it had many options for the export into this format.

I have attached the Rollei logo with the same settings, maybe you can place and click it without changing the color.

Hello, I have been thinking to contribute these open source projects, being Linux user since 2005 and Scribus has been one of my most used programs so it is probably a good time to give something back. I started by setting a virtual environment, installed Scribus from source and registered to Transifex. As instructed, translation projects are good way to start – as my native language is Finnish – to contribute. After that, maybe looking into documentation and after that bug squashing but one thing at a time.

Interesting, toyotadesigner. Are you talking about an Inkscape vector graphic you imported to Scribus? For me, when I click inside the imported graphic the background turns pink and perimeter nodes appear (all elements are grouped); when I click outside the graphic the background and nodes disappear.

Linux / Re: Scribus 1.5.7 cannot 'see installed GIMP 2.10.28 Mint 20.2 Cinnamon

Thank for your continued help. I usually start any flatpak application from the Cinnamon menu, i.e. as a GUI application rather than using the command line (simply because, at my advanced age, I have time left only for using my PC to do work, not for trying to become an expert in how it works). The start menu icon for GIMP gives no information (that I can find) that shows what the invocation string is.

It should, because it is just a shortcut to the command.

You probably need to use the full path to flatpak. Issue the command "which flatpak" from the comment line to see the full path.

When you run a command from the command line the set PATH will be searched, but when running from Scribus the PATH is likely not set so you must use the full path to the command.

Text and Typography / how to right align a list numbered with Roman numerals
« Last post by LateJunction on October 31, 2021, 06:31:27 pm »
When I create a numbered list using Roman Numerals in Scribus 1.5.7, those numbers are left aligned with a ragged right edge. As a result, because these numerals are not fixed width, the first or leading character of the list items are not vertically left aligned: instead they are ragged too.  So, I would like the trailing edge of the Roman numeral to be right aligned as well. How do I do all that - there are no options in the definition of a numbered list which seem relevant.

General Discussion / Re: Scribus immediately crashes
« Last post by thomasn on October 31, 2021, 05:49:09 pm »
Thank you for your reply! I tried renaming the .scribus directory, but it doesn't rebuild the directory. Reinstalling Scribus doesn't change anything either (and it still doesn't rebuild the .scribus directory).

My system is a simple five year old desktop (Intel i3-6100, Nvidia GTX 1050, 8GB ram, sata SSD). It has been running the same installation of Arch Linux for five years, which is up to date (Linux kernel 5.14.14-arch1-1). I have used Scribus on this system frequently, but last used it this summer, so I don't know precisely when it began crashing. I have not noticed any other indications of SSD failure and just ran a S.M.A.R.T. test on the drive, which it passed without errors.

Look at where the shortcut you use start GIMP points.

I have never heard of flatpaks before, but a quick googling indicates the command should be something like
Code: [Select]
flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP
Thank for your continued help. I usually start any flatpak application from the Cinnamon menu, i.e. as a GUI application rather than using the command line (simply because, at my advanced age, I have time left only for using my PC to do work, not for trying to become an expert in how it works). The start menu icon for GIMP gives no information (that I can find) that shows what the invocation string is. However, searching among the flatpak help system I was able to confirm your suggestion about the required command string. And indeed this works when entered from the command line. But entering this string ("flatpak run .org.gimp.GIMP") in Scribus preferences takes me directly back to where I started this forum Post: error message "The program flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP is missing or failed to open".

Well, which is it ? If it is missing why not tell the user from which location it is missing? If it failed to open why not tell the user the reason code, given by the kernel, for this failure to open? The location question is made a great deal more complex by trying to definitively locate the GIMP executable. So far I have tried the following locations within my 'out of the box' Cinnamon install:

Then there is the tree like structure starting from /usr/lib  and /usr/share. I've run out of time to test these.

None of those locations tested to so far are valid, and this has taken many hours of work, leading me to conclude that it is not possible to invoke Gimp 2.10.28 (flatpak - the only available version now) from Scribus 2.5.7 . This seems like a defect - which is surprising to me given that both of these applications have existed for many years (admittedly, not in Flatpak form). The quicker, but much less efficient, way to solve this problem  is to temporarily stop work in Scribus, start GIMP and do the editing there, save the edited image file, then reload it into Scribus - then repeat as often as necessary to get the image adjusted as needed. Not very user friendly, is it?
