It usually just looks at all fonts named by fontconnfig and in the
/System/Library/Fonts, /Library/Fonts, /Network/Library/Fonts and
One can configure additional directories in Scribus preferences, but I
didnt get that far.
Three more tries:
a) Make sure you use at least OSX 10.3.9
b) Maybe fontconfig was never used before on your machine. I remember
where that caused problems. Did you ever start X11? Try running "sudo
from Terminal.app and try starting Scribus then.
c) Start Scribus with "gdb /Applications/Scribus.app" (or whereever you
wait until it's a few minutes into building the fontcache, then press
Ctrl-C in Terminal.app.
Enter "bt" and copy the information it outputs. File a bug on
and attach that information.
Thanks for your patience! :-) Please leave a short notice if a) or b) worked
