Actually I print the file I saved from Scribus (.sla) using lpr from the 
command line an it prints fine. I have not set the alternate print command 
line in Scribus, I was using the defauft printer, my CUPS EpsonAlso text 
documents from OOo print thru CUPS fine. This was all working from Scribus 
until I upgraded Scribus a couple of weeks ago. I will try the things Craig 
mentioned to see if that shows anymore info. Will post again.
