I'm trying to get Scribus scripting working on OS X (Leopard 10.5.5).
I'm using 126.96.36.199 and building the X-Windows version. I'm essentially
using the same build as in MacPorts but trying to enable python
scripting. So I do a ./configure with a bunch of options (see below)
and and a build and install no problems. Scribus runs with no errors
but no script window shows up. I've also tried a binary version from
the website 1.3.5svn and again no script menu.
The ./configure script prints a summary
Freetype2 installed: Yes
Fontconfig found: Yes
CUPS installed: Yes
LittleCMS installed: Yes
libtiff installed: Yes
Libxml2 installed: Yes
Python installed: Yes
Debugging enabled: No
cairo enabled: Yes
GhostScript 8.57 was found at /usr/local/
the only warning I can find relevant is that it can't find the Boost
libraries, which as far as I can tell aren't a problem.
Scribus runs fine and doesn't make any errors about not being able to
find python or extensions or anything.
I've had a bit a google etc. and I wasn't able to find much to help me
figure out what's wrong. So any help or nudge in the right direction
