Hi Folks,

Greetings to everyone who has joined the List, I'm glad
that this List found so much Acceptance.

Instead of answering every Question of the last 2 Days
in a seperate Mail I'm doing this in one go.

Bryan J. Smith asked:
  >BTW, what distro is Scribus largely developed on?  Debian?
Scribus is developed on a SuSE 7.0 with several updates of
QT, KDE and other things. When SuSE 8.2 comes out will up-
grade to this because of the new GCC and XFree.

Qwen <oc at webone.com.au> asked:
  >Is this where bugs should be reported?
It's adviseable to report Bugs to the List, there is always
a chance the get Help from others on the List.

That's surprisingly a Mandrake only problem, maybe it's corrected in
Version 0.9.8, but I don't now why this problem arises.

This is corrected in Version 0.9.8, Trolltech has changed something
in QTextstream that causes incorrect behaviour with UNIX Lineends.

I'm working on that issue, the latest Qt-3.1.1 introduces also
some strange behavior with the European Euro Symbol. I can insert
it with the "Insert Special" Dialog, but I can't type it in directly.

 >let's hope there is franz subsribed into this list...
Of Course I'm subscribed to this List, otherwise it wouldn't make
any sense.

That's all for the moment now. I hope that the Discussion will be
worthy for everyone.

Once again, Greetings to all,
Franz Schmid
