If you can print from other apps, the settings are not the issue. You
don't say what Scribus version you are using.
Hopefully you have a recent Ghostscript.
Try checking Alternative Print Command in the Print dialog, then
in the box below something like
where printername is the name you assigned to your printer.
If that doesn't work, try printing to a PS file (in Print Destination
look for File) and see if you can view that to make sure Scribus is
generating a good PS file for printing.
Thank you Greg I'll give this a go.
