[Scribus] Scribus fails to print or to write a PFD
Thu Nov 24 17:07:46 CET 2005
I was using Scribus 1.2.1 Build -ID: 08 under SuSE Linux 9.3 to write
newsletters and everything worked perfectly. I print to an hp deskjet5650
through the CUPS Driver.
I decided to update to Novell/suse 10.0 (when will I ever learn). Scribus did
not appear on the upgraded system so I installed the RPM from the
distribution DVD using YAST2. What Installed was Scribus 220.127.116.11 but
apparently something did not get updated. Scribus starts as usual and I can
create and save a document (.sla format). However the document will not
print. The error message "printing failed" is rather unhelpful. I looked
in /var/log/messages and /var/log/cups-errors with no helpful information.
Other applications such as OO writer print fine.
Scribus 18.104.22.168 will not create the PFD file wither. Message reads "can not
write file" .
Selecting Help>about Scibus brings up a blank box where as formerly it
produced a logo and information about the version and build. My linux skill
level is beginner so I stick to using RPM's and stable builds. Given these
constraints do you have any suggestions about how I can fix this problem?
