passepartout is in very early stages of development (three releases so
far, 0.0, 0.1 and now 0.2) but takes a very different approach to dtp.
one enters text in xml format in any text editor and use xsl
transformations. you need to install xslt (if you are running rpm-based
distro then libxslt, libxslt-devel and xslt-proc). 

on an mdk 9.1 system, i had to install gtkmm-2.2.3, libsigc++-1.2.3 and
libxml++-0.24 and it compiles fine. you also need to have the latest
gtk2 libraries installed.
