I set the linescreen in Scribus pdf export. Then, do I use the default screen

Unfortunately, gsview does not work in Mandrake 10, or, rather, I can't get it 
to work properly.

I'm willing to try it again.

Sometimes the text frame contents are visible and sometimes they disappear. 
It's not consistent.  What would these wierd spaces look like? Can they be 
seen in the text editor?
