I'm very impressed with the effort that has been generated to help Asif 
with his problem, but I worry he is getting himself sidetracked worrying 
so much about colour management.
I use Scribus quite a bit for generating photo albums with captions and 
commentary after I come home from vacation.  I have lcms installed, but 
I don't bother with profiles, because I'm just printing on my HP 
Photosmart printer, which does a great job either from Scribus or from 
the PDF via acroread. 
I would hope at some point Asif starts the learning curve with the main 
features of using Scribus -- he can always fiddle around with colour 
management later (and only if needed).
I'm pretty obsessive-compulsive myself (and I suspect there is a high 
incidence of obsessive-compulsive people who work with DTP, especially 
on this list), but it helps to know when (and how) to turn it off sometimes.
