So Scribus has to catch up with Gutenprint to correct this or
Ghostscript? I'm trying to remember the last time I did get a print
from Scribus. It was when I was using SuSE, but I did convert the
system over to Gutenprint before moving to Zenwalk Linux. Seems like it
printed even after I built Gutenprint to install, but I honestly don't
I know Zenwalk started with Gimp-print, but soon moved to Gutenprint,
but I can't remember a time I could print directly from Scribus in ZW,
even with Gimp-print? I just noticed the previous thread here and used
the alternate command, using kprinter, which worked.
