I prefer the [year.month] model: 2024.4 if the release came out this month. Easy to understand.

Installation and Setup / Re: Scribus 1.6.1 Dark Mode in...
Last post by a.l.e - April 06, 2024, 03:44:29 PM
I've finally tried it out on Windows 10 and could get Scribus to start with the dark mode by:

  • Windwows key / command, type "dark" and choose "turn on dark mode for apps"
  • Change the option "Choose your color" to "dark"
  • Start scribus with "Scribus.exe -platform windows:darkmode=2"

Just picking the dark theme for Windows or using the darkmode command line option do not seem to be enough.

Anybody can find a better solution?

p.s.: here is some documentation from qt...

I was mainly referring to that the first 1 has been there a long time without changing, and thus it not really significant.

It's a bit like when you in homebrewing refer to the specific gravity, you usually say SG 50 when it is formally 1,050. (And you say -10 when it is rather 0,990.)

no, it's about dropping the third number (we have had a forth one sometimes) and increasing the first instead of the second.

but yes, we could also drop the 1. and make the next stable release scribus 7.0 or 7.1 (instead of the 1.8.0 that we would get, if we follow the current schema).

now that i think about it, your suggestion is even better and would avoid the "not so nice" 2.0 (many people associate a small revolution with the release of a 2.0 version...).
and i've already seen several people mentioning scribus 5.4 without the leading 1.

such a jump has already happened for other projects. that wouldn't something completely new.

You are essentially suggesting to drop the first 1 that has been there like forever? :)

I usually send a really shrinked preview of a magazine to other collaborators using this ghostscript command from bash shell on linux:
gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dPDFSETTINGS=/ebook -dNOPAUSE -dQUIET -dBATCH -sOutputFile=output-small.pdf input-big.pdf

bonjour

le fichier que tu a mis en annexe est un fichier pdf...
et je peux l'importer dans scribus sans trop de problèmes (les cases sont loin d'être parfaites, mais le text est reconnu).

pense_bete_cb.png

par contre, je ne suis pas au courant du fait que scribus puisse importer des fichier ods.
donc c'est déjà presque un miracle que tu puisse lire les consonnes et le voyelles non accentuées...

je crois que nous avons besoins de plus de détails sur ce que tu es en train de faire...

ceci dit, si tu veux garder le tableau de libreoffice et just en placer plusieurs -- tels quels -- dans une page A4, tu peux importer le fichier PDF en tant que vecteur et le résultat est parfait.
mais, là, tu ne pourras pas modifier le texte dans scribus.

let's try to sum it up:

  • i have a light mode "vanilla" linux (no desktop environment), and i could not get scribus to use a dark mode.
  • we have several people complaining that on their dark mode MacOs they don't see the icons (and the reply is: pick the dark icons). so i have to assume that it just works for them.
  • we have lot of people complaining that on windows they don't manage to get scribus to use the dark mode.

my question: are there people around that are actually using scribus 1.6 with dark mode on windows or linux?

can they tell the community, if they had to do anything special to get scribus to match the (dark) system theme?

(btw, as far as i understood, the development branch 1.7.0 should automatically detect the dark theme... but that's for the "distant" future...)



Here a summary of the (still partial) result of the survey:

  • It works correctly on Linux with KDE and the Kvantum theme installed.

I'll update this list with the feedback of the users.
