In the Scribus 1.3.5 review in LGW
http://www.libregraphicsworld.org/articles.php?article_id=9, Alexandre
mentions a technique to import pantone colour palette. I tried this,but
it doesnt quite give enough detail to work.

>       EPS and AI as swatches
> Importing EPS and AI files as swatches actually means that you can
> easily enable Pantone color palettes in Scribus. This is how you do it:
>    1. Register at Pantone web site.
>    2. Download swatches installation package.
>    3. Install it (using WINE on Linux — it does work).
>    4. Go to /Edit > Colors/.
>    5. Click *Import* button.
>    6. Point to a EPS with a Pantone palette.
I registered and downloaded The MyPantone free app. and yes it does work
under WINE. But how do you get it to save colours into a format that
Scribus can import ? You can save in various formats for Indesign,
Illustrator, even Coreldraw, but they are in bin formats such as .acb

I'm sure this will be useful for many others, so i would appreciate some

Kind regards
