Andreas and Jon:

    Thank you so much for helping me install Scribus for the Mac on  
OSX. However, I am done banging my head against the wall for  
installing it. I've tried for over a week to get it to run, and it  
ALWAYS stops at building the font cache. It sits there for over an  
hour and then finally quits. I have tried to find out why (with your  
help)  through the Console and Activity viewer, and have gotten no  
results that I could understand. I am not as competent as both of you  
with the Command Line Interface, nor do I know exactly what to look  
for to fix my problem. Some of your directions are unclear to me (but  
would probably be a snap to understand if I knew more Unix commands  
or the CLI. Mu Unix experience is very limited.) I had hoped Scribus  
could be the DTP solution that I was looking for (like Open Office is  
and Abiword for Word Processing), but I must have been mistaken. I do  
not give up easily, nor let programs get the best of me, but I just  
don't understand WHY this program refuses to even let me see what it  
supposed to do!

    If you are willing to help me "offline" to get this sucker to  
work, let me know.
