Hi All,

Yep sorry, act of stupidity number one was leaving out the fact that 
it's on Windows but I'm 99% Linux : 1% XP so I forgot ;)  It's only 
after going through the scripted installs on XP that I really appreciate 
what a great line "apt-get -y install ......"  is.

I have Ghostscript scripted so it installs without prompting for 
confirmations but I couldn't work Scribus out. I'll copy it onto our 
data server, pull the directory down during logon and will post a result 
to the list for anyone else who may have this question.

Thanks for all your help,


Julian PB
