Thanks, it looks fine. Now at least i now it SHOULD work.

I have removed all old versions of scribus and ghostscript, and now I  
have only your Aqua 1.2.3cvs build, with the 8.5 Ghostscript.framework.

When trying to import my music.ps, I get the an error message that  
only says that "the import failed".

In Scribus, when I look in Settings->Fonts, I see a whole bunch of  
fonts from different folders, but when I try to make a simple text  
box in a new document, I cannot type anything. (Well, I can type, but  
nothing happens on screen.) When I try to set a font, using Style- 
 >Font, there are no fonts at all to choose from.

However, the Font Preview tool works fine.

I have removed ~/.scribus and ~/Library/Preferences/ 
net.scribus.plist. Do you know of any other settings files hidden in  
the system?

Any guess?
