      First, I disabled all those programs you suggested that may be  
causing problems. I also rebooted in Safe Reboot with those items  
disabled. It still refused to get past the Font Cache. I then started  
Activity Monitor. As I was watching the Activity Monitor, it kept re- 
reading a few, certain fonts. But the fonts would not log a written  
action on the Activity Monitor screen. They kept being rejected: they  
would start to appear on the log activity, then disappear. The fonts  
in question were a few Microsoft .ttf fonts, a Sign Language font,  
and an ALIAS icon to Myriad Software's Music fonts. So I put those  
fonts in a Fonts.disabled folder I created, and Scribus booted up! So  
then I rebooted my system with all those disabled programs re- 
enabled, and Scribus STILL RAN! So something in the disabled Font  
folder was causing the problem. I slowly added each font, restarting  
Scribus after each font was loaded UNTIL I came to the ALIAS icon.  
Guess what? When I clicked on the Alias Icon, it said it could not  
find the original. Well, I had DELETED it a long time ago!! I deleted  
the ALIAS, and Scribus runs, and I'm almost all set!!!!!

      But when it runs, I get a requester saying it cannot find  
Ghostscript. Ghostscript is indeed installed. Why can't it find it?
