I run scribus with this command but the problem is still there: LC_ALL=C

I have created my design in Inkscape and exported it as plain *.svg,
*.eps and *.pdf.

If I print the *.pdf file generated by inkscape it looks fine fonts are
also embedded in the file. (but the pdf is not CMYK and not printer
ready I think)

Now I created a new A4 document with scribus and imported the *.svg and
 *.eps file.

The *.svg file is not correctly imported and looks totally different (if
I open the *.svg with opera it looks the same) Why does scribus not
import w3c correct *.svg files?

The *.eps file is correctly imported. If I print the document directly
to my postscript printer is looks OK.

But I want to export it to *.pdf. So I preform a export. But now the
*.pdf does not contain embedded fonts any more and looks and print
different (I think the *.eps is converted to a 300 dpi image)

How do I solve these problems?

Best regards,
