These are a good start: 


This is a selection of "standard" press profiles, as well as a couple of 
RGB working profiles in particular Adobe RGB 1998, which is recommended for
photo images - if you do editing in Photoshop and your converting to

There are other country specific press profiles on www.pdfx.info -
mostly European standards.

Drop the profiles in /scribus/profiles and restart Scribus - should work

Post back if your not successful.
