With Windows XP GDI+ is already installed. Freetype is bundled with
the Scribus install. I am not sure, but the download version may not
be compatible with XP.
I would remove both, then remove Scribus, the Scribus preference files
and re-install Scribus. On Windows the preferences file is under
Documents and Settings/%username/.scribus
Other possible causes a severely broken freeware True Type font - even
though Scribus has lots of 'self-defence' code to prevent fonts from
causing crashes. Do you have a lot of freeware True Type fonts
One other issue we have learned is some custom themes *do* cause
problems with Scribus, hence we have strongly recommended disabling
them when running Scribus.
Lastly, please do not send HTML mail to a mailing list. It is simply
not good netiqette. I am being polite and this is a very civilized
group. Other lists I know of would enjoy a flamefest directed at
you - just for sending HTML mail.
Hope that helps,
