Appologizes accepted, I've seen many cases in the last 2 years, where it
finally turned out that it had been a defective Qt lib. I'm the opinion
that it's generally the best to compile Qt by yourself. Most of the Distros
do integrate some of their own stuff (Bugfixes and so called Improvements)
into the libs that it's very difficult to make things right for every-

The newest riddle is that Slackware 9 users can't enter Text from the Key-
board, but it works on every other Distro.

The Option to print in Landscape was missing indeed, in this case you
were totally right.

Today I made some small improvement in this case, but the Textboxes are the
most complex Object Scribus has. A small hint, you can always force a redraw
by pressing the middle Mouse Button.
