Interesting that the LTSP folks are looking at Scribus. Anyone
interested in using it needs to be aware that Scribus renders the
on-screen canvas in a way that produces accurate results, but at the
cost of a lot of bitmap blitting. A *lot*. Using it over remote X11 is
possible, and works ok, but will use much more bandwidth than you'd
expect and can bog down badly at times.
Future improvements in the canvas's intelligence about what to redraw
should help, but it's unlikely to ever be all that snappy over raw
remote X (unless we move to some totally different canvas implementation).
Peter Linnell has found, however, that using the `NX' X11 proxy renders
it very usable even over the Internet on a DSL line, and there's been
discussion about NX integration in LTSP...
