I've just tested this with the Hardy package and icc-profiles package
containing a few sample profiles on a newly installed Hardy system to simulate
the worst possible case. I do see the "Input profile" menu in the "Image" tab
in the Properties palette. The only things I did to get to this point were:

* install scribus ( package from the Scribus Archive using the
package manager.
* install icc-profiles package from Ubuntu's Multiverse archive.
* start scribus and do not create a new document or open an existing document.
* go to "File>Preferences>Color Management"
* select the "Activate Color Management" checkbox and select appropriate
"System Profiles" and "Rendering Intents".
* create a new document and insert an image frame into a page.
* insert an image into an image frame.
* open properties palette and select the "Image" tab.

It's working just fine and not because my system is set up for it. Remember -
I did this on a freshly installed Hardy.
