Scripts and Plugins / DirectImageImport Script Modul...
Last post by srikrishnan - April 29, 2024, 09:19:46 AM
Hi all,

I am using scribus 1.6.1. In this i have following Python version:

3.8.18 (default, Aug 25 2023, 21:10:31) [MSC v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)]

i tried to run "DirectImageImport" script from Script menu. I have encountered below error:

---------------------------
PIL
---------------------------
Unable to import the Python Imaging Library module.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

in my windows 10 system, i have installed following version python:

Python 3.11.4 (tags/v3.11.4:d2340ef, Jun  7 2023, 05:45:37) [MSC v.1934 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32

I tried to install all modules in my system python and for testing purpose I tried to copy those modules into "C:\Program Files\Scribus 1.6.1\python\lib\site-packages". sorry, i may be wrong, i tried this because in past one other simple module i copied and it works in scribus. Please help me to fix this issue.

regards,
Srikrishnan

I've spent some hours fiddling with psnup and I can't make an output on one page. Something wrong with my command, or I should input ps not pdf? Will try some more. Pdf Tweak didn't run, java issue.
psnup -c -q -h37.74cm -h25cm -3 cover.pdf cover1.pdf
However, a work around in Scribus, I calculated my book cover total width (fr+bk+spine) and made a new one page doc of exact dimensions, then selected all objects from my original three page spread and pasted onto new doc -fits exactly.

But I have to say, a 3-page spread is much better to work with as it then gives margins for front/back near spine and also boundary of the spine. Adjusting spine width is also a doddle, and the front page just shifts to the left or right.

I think the OP is referring to this column

The title of that column is "Rejected Fonts" and the list gives error messages. I suspect you are using Scribus in another interface language and we can get a better translation for that data.

I found the solution!

I stop using Scribus - the icon size is embarrassingly small on my 4k+ monitor anyway :-).

Thanks for your help,

e.

Well, the fonts work fine in GIMP etc. and they are recognized by Scribus (and displayed correctly in the "Never should be shown" list, so that suggests there's nothing wrong with the fonts in Linux?

But, thanks for the suggestion.

Hi, @PatJr.

Thanks for the response - I'll try reinstalling, but are you certain that some sub-fonts in some families are not precluded from the list?

For example: I have Noto Sans installed and about 7 of the 18 or so variants are available, but not the ones on the list.

don't help, but my install seems to just ignore the Never Show list
