[Scribus] Pictures not printing : A problem solved!
Fri Oct 29 10:12:40 CEST 2004
Some notes about the solution to a printing problem I'd been having. May
Hitting Print sent the job to the printer, the "receiving data" light
flashed, etc., but nothing came out. The job disappeared.
Through a process of elimination I determined the problem lay with
pictures. Remove the pictures, the document would print. Add them back,
nothing. Exporting to PDF and printing from there worked fine, but not
from Scribus. Curious.
(To reproduce the problem consistently I opened New From Template /
Newsletter_2 and tested by trying to print pages 1 and 3.)
Changed to printer driver "gimp-print-ijs". Fixed!! (See below* if you're
not sure how...)

o You may or may not need to shut down and restart Scribus after the
change. I restarted and it worked right away.
