When I replied I just hit the reply button forgetting to check the email 
address that is why it went directly to you.
So, I am reposting it.
This is just to say to everyone that my problem with color management has 
been solved simply by reconfiguring Scribus.
I thought, it would be helpful to insert a brief note in the install 
instructions about the steps of enabling color management in Scribus. It 
simple, I can see it now, but unless you are a developer, not at all obvious 
how to do it.
