[Scribus] PDF/X-3 Option 'Disabled'

Hi again,

Just want to go over the basics.

1. As a very first step, you need to make sure littlecms is 
installed. You can check this in the About Scribus menu where you'll 
note the compilation date. There are capital letters following the 
date. One of them stands for littlecms and tooltips are there to 
assist. If this is not the case, nothing else will be of any use. How 
to install this properly is beyond me. But I know docs.scribus.net 
must be pretty clear. :)

2. Then, as bostjan points out, you need ICC profiles, both CMYK and 
RGB in the same directory. You have to tell Scribus where to locate 
this directory.

3. Only then will you be able to activate Color Management (from my 
previous post).

4. Then, you will have access to PDF/X-3.

Hope this clarifies!
