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.
