What kind of printer? Scribus outputs Postscript 3. If you have a
Postscript 2 printer, such as a HPLJ1100, 1200 or 1300, you will have to
use a lower level printer driver rather than the native one that perhaps
is set up as postscript. These printers or any non PS3 printer cant
understand PS3 and just dump the job. Two ways around this:
1) Also set up a printer such as I have, ie HPLJ1300 using the hlpj5gray
2) Export to PDF and then print from Acrobat with the Postscript level 2
option in its print dialog
