I work on redhat 8.0, but have been using scribus quite some time for now,
I've found quite some bugs that Franz was very willing to fix each time :)
These are new bugs according to me, I don't have any issue under redhat
itself but acrobat under windows (sorry, I forgot to mention I tested
acrobat reader under windows) is complaining with "missing fonts" in each
of the above mentioned cases. The scribus generated pdf was for pdf
version 5 (not pdf/x-3, since I don't have color management configured
correctly yet ...)
