Linux / Colorprofile for print not shown
« Last post by Bogo75 on Today at 12:41:41 pm »

I use Scribus 1.5.7 on Gentoo Linux and can't find a way to install an icc color profile from Saal Digital.
In particular I try to install/use Fotobuch Matt. I have unzipped the archive and copied the included .icc to /usr/share/color/icc/
Unfortunately in Scribus color management settings only my monitor settings are shown which I have copied exactly to the same folder.

Is there something wrong with the icc profile (Darktable accepts it btw) or is there something I have been missing?

How do I set colors in Scribus 1.5.7, and have the best result (least difference in color) between what I see on screen and what I have printed?
Beginner Talk / Importing content to multiple pages
« Last post by johntennock on Today at 07:34:49 am »
Hi All, Just getting my head around Scribus to prepare a book for publishing.

The manuscript is being created in Libre Office. It seems most efficient if I could import it directly and the procedure I am following is:

Page | Insert | 20 pages.
Insert | Frames... Text, All Pages, Link inserted frames

My issue is that I would prefer to import the content by selecting the source document in the Insert Frames | Options tab.

This works fine except that it inserts a space between paragraphs. I have checked the manuscript to ensure that there are no empty paragraphs.

If I go the alternative route and copy/paste the content into the Story Editor it is fine, without spaces between paragraphs.

I'm wondering if there is a setting I am missing to strip the empty lines when importing directly?

Thanks in anticipation.

Beginner Talk / Re: How to the remove marges when printing ?.

I'm a beginner, and I have problems for printing. Ometv Chatroulette Omegle Bazoocam

I first use A4 portrait pages and try to print 2 pages on A4 landscape (as we can do with OpenOffice), but the print page is always in A4 portrait, the print is bad.

So I decide to change the page format to A4 landscape, and reduce the first content (fonts, ...) to choose the page : A4 (pages en regard)

But, when I print, I have big marges on the top, the left, and the right, and all the pages which seem correct in the page are wrong on paper.

What do I miss ?


thanks for the awesome information.

hi admfubar

at the moment scribus supports sample text for 21 different languages (including arabic).
you may still miss some languages, and i didn't try any rtl features (as i'm not familiar with rtl languages) - but it's not just 'lorem ipsum'

General Discussion / Lorem Ipsum and other languages

I was looking over a users issue from LibreOffice regarding labels and was testing the label after removing the the border, making sure the label still accepted text. I copied and pasted a small part of lorem ippum  to the lable to make the test.

I then noted to myself that LO and Scribus are used the world over, in many languages and thought about lorem ipsum is used as a standard looking text for layout testing.
But what about other languages?  Like RTL, Verticle. Are there any equivalents to lorem ipsum, and not just direct translations of it, for other languages?
This seems like a worth while addition for user contributions for Scribus and LO.

Would like to hear other ideas on such an addition.

well you can do layers in Scribus and each can have .SVG files on them and you can then make a .PDF

I have just discovered Scribus and I was wondering if it would be possible to create a single page PDF with multiple layers from different SVG files.
As I said, I have never used this program, so maybe this is a simple question, but I will appreciate any help.
Text and Typography / Re: uneven rendering of fonts

Thanks, zooming in didn't improve this. However, with a larger font I am now satisfied its OK.

Did you try printing the PDF?

How does it look if you zoom in?

Most likely it is just a screen viewing issue due to that the font for some reason lacks good hinting (or that then hinting information for some reason is lost, maybe due to subsetting).

(Hinting is data telling how to render the font in low resolutions, when parts end up in between pixels)
