Hi Greg, you made my day!

There was already the setting "Screen/Web", but that inspired me to
try a PDF export and print that file instead from scribus directly. So
I exported the file with color management 'off', looks ok in kpdf.

comparable to the good result of kword.
So I think the problem is related in the scribus - cups interaction or
somewhere in that corner.

But I have now problem to export before printing into a PDF so for me
the issue is solved.
