[Scribus] Presentation and pdf export problem (file too big ?)
Mon Mar 27 11:18:24 CEST 2006
I'm called Aur?lien, I live in France and am currently in PhD in
Acoustics and Signal and Information Processing.
I play music and take part in a lot of associative things around music
and art. I use scribus in that way to create CD's cover, or flyers, and
I'm using scribus-cvs under Debian SID (currently scribus-cvs 1.3.3), on
a laptop that is a Celeron 2GHz, with 256DDR, 200Go HDD, and a sis
integrated video card. I should say it's sometimes quite hard and long
Here's my problem today (I did alreay come on irc channel, but today, I
can't !) :
I'm publishing a picture to announce a concert. This picture is 400mm
wide for 600mm height, CMJN (CMYK, is it ?), at 300dpi.
There are 5 layers in the scribus file, one contains the picture on which
I'm supposed to work, whos height is 7300px and width is 4866px. It's a
tif file in CMYK.
The others layers just contains several texts, and picture, which are
I've to say that the tif file weights 102Mo !
My publication has now ended, but I didn't convince the society who will
print it to use scribus, and I've to export the file to a pdf file.
I've tried it, but anyway, it doesn't work. A bad allocation, it says,
in the log. Not more. I've tried to reduce the size (in px) of the big
picture, and I managed to export it, but as I'm to the right size, it
I don't know if that comes from my laptop, or is well-known, or what.
I can send someone the file, I've got a big network, if that helps (I
can put it all on a ftp server).
Hope you did understand my problem, and will help me in managing it !
