What about owner and permissions? Are the files you copied now 644 and owned by root? (That is how it looks in the folders I looked into).

@toyotadesigner: Thanks for your encouraging words.

About your remark: I found out by experimenting that even with maximum image compression, the PDF size is much higher than with using the ‘PhotoBookImageCropResize’-script.

I didn't intend you to randomly test copying to different folders, but rather research the correct way to install profiles.

I didn't do the installation randomly. First I followed the Scribus docs here: https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Getting_and_installing_ICC_profiles
Second I researched the Gentoo docs about installing color profiles.
And the last step was to debug Scribus itself:
strace -fetrace=file scribus |& grep local.*icc

As that said, I am pretty sure I had chosen the correct path in the first. Not to say I am sure. :-)

Stange that they are that biased as they mention Scribus on a different doc about preparing documents for printing. Maybe I really go without softproof, but with a profiled monitor setup only.

Isn't there a way to convert to a different format. Or better: Is there experience with Saal Digital anywhere?

The company is extremely Adobe oriented and biased. Use the standard PDF/X-4 and contact an experienced printing company that knows how to handle their RIP.

I am pretty sure the path is correct as other manual installed profiles are shown within Scribus. But I have tested the folders you mention as well. No chance.

I personally never manually copy things to /usr/share, because those folders are often maintained by install scripts (at least under Debian derivates).

I am not sure, if I want to go with "any" ICC profile. Isn't there a way to convert to a different format. Or better: Is there experience with Saal Digital anywhere?

I have unzipped the archive and copied the included .icc to /usr/share/color/icc/

Are you 100% sure this is the right way to install the profiles? (I have not installed any ICC profiles in a couple of years, so I don't remember if is as easy as that. And I don't have Scribus installed on a Linux machine at the moment.)

Did you check the ownership and permissions on the files? Maybe Scribus is not allowed to read them.

I notice that on the Ubuntu machine I have here there are no profiles in /user/share/color/icc/, instead there are two subfolders (colord and ghostscript).

 Wow! Though I guess I will never use these scripts, I really appreciate your work to develop these scripts for the community.

Your #4: …and resize them to the desired dpi (reduction of file size).
This can be done while exporting the file to a PDF by setting the highest possible DPI value:

Hi Bogo,

I am using the ISOcoated_v2_300_eci.icc or coated_FOGRA39_GCR_bas.icc for all printing purposes. Then I export the file to a PDF/X-4 document. Usually the RIPs (Raster Image Processors) of the printing companies or service providers analyze the PDF and substitute the icc profile with their »custom profile« if necessary (even not so modern RIPs can do that IF the operator has the knowledge and is willing to do it). If someone forces me to use his »custom« profile, I back off and contact another company. If a company does not or can not stick to the international standards, they won't be my printing partner. Never.

User Interface / Re: File selection dialog box always reverts to small size

I am not using Scribus currently and so this is just an idea from the sidelines.
I have found that sometimes it pays to work in concert with other tools.
That is in a "toolchain".

If you have hundreds of images to select from during writing then this is a natural case for using automation scripts.

One tool comes to mind for Ubuntu (I am in Ubuntu 20.04).
You could install Albert and designate a hot key to list the images you are searching through then copy and paste into Scribus.  A python extension to Albert will do this.  This is faster than drag and drop.

In Mac the tool would be Alfred.

There are other such automation tools and some trial and error is needed. But in essence you hop between two or more tools to complete a task.  Scribus Scripter should also be considered.
