Hi Craig

Thanks for the input.  I understand but was (and am) too frustrated to
think about the subject heading.  I just copied the files I extracted
from profiles.zip into the .scribus/profiles directory (which is a
hidden directory in my home directory).  However, I still don't see
any color management options.

What do I do now?  I want to use the color management and actually see
the print quality.

Best regards
