HI Samps:
Sorry I should have mentioned that my distro is also Ubuntu Breezy, and yes, 
it's "just plain nice!". I have tried Red Hat, Mandrake, Suse and a couple of 
others, but I finally settled on Ubuntu. It's not perfect, but then again, 
what is?
I thought my problems with Scribus might have been a QT issue, but Craig tells 
me it's a temporary problem, so instead of compiling from source (I can do, 
but don't like doing it with Ubuntu) I think I'll just wiat for the next 
issue and then install the next one from Synaptic. That way I'm almost 
guaranteed no problems. I say "almost" because look what just happened. I 
must say, this is the first time since Hoary Hedgehog that Ubuntu has failed 
to perform as expected, and it turns out not to be an Ubuntu problem after 
It's great to be able to get such wonderful support from this community. I 
can't picture trying to get this level of help anywhere else. You guys are 
terrific. Thanks.
