Ok, I installed that thing and recompiled Scribus. Wonderful, all 
options are there now.

BUT IT'S SO NASTY: There is still the problem that when I want to 
combine 2 A4 pages on an A3 sheet, the A4 pages are shown at their 
correct positions but zoomed down as if they were both printed onto an 
A4 sheet. So both pages are on the landscape A3 somehow smaller and in 
their lower left corner, but at the correct positions.

As I wrote, in the Windows printer driver I can determine the size of 
the originals AND the size of the printed media (A4 -> A3). Here from 
CUPS I don't get that option, I just can choose the media size.

No idea what causes this, but a solution would be much appreciated :-))

I tried it a bit, it's ok, I could live with it. I'll have to 
investigate further, however, how to print certain pages A4 to A3. Maybe 
within the next hours.
