i would also like to in the future. but what exactly is the problem
regarding fonts? i've scribus 0.9.7 compiled under mandrake 9 (scribus
wouldn't compile with the default liblcms and liblcms-devel that ships
with mandrake 9; i had to compile lcms from the source) and i have over
100 fonts available for scribus. ttf and postscript fonts that i
installed using ttmkfdir, mkfontdir and chkfontpath --add.

another thing is that when scribus is run for the first time (or
subsequently with the .scribus dir deleted/renamed) all the menus appear
nicely anti-aliased. from the second run onwards, the anti-aliased menus
disappear. not that i mind that very much. but the text in the text
boxes still remains anti-aliased. openoffice exhibits the same behaviour
under mdk 9. i am sure it varies from distro to distro.

regards, subash.
