Hi Andreas

I think coreldraw 11 works well with wine, because its the last major  
revision to work in windows 98? please somone corrent me if im wrong,  
but i have tried to do extensive research on the subject. From what i  
remember, lots of programs that require XP/2k or IE7, have problems  

While i think on, is there any where that i can download a fairly  
complicated layout that somone has prepared for scribus, so i can  
reverse engineer it? and see how another user has utilised the  
functionality etc...
ive looked through the templates on the scribus site, but most of  
them i believe to be templates for stickers n such like?

Also, i did read somwhere that uniconverter would possibly be  
incorporated into scribus? just curious that all :)
at the moment, i think i have to uninstall the current uniconverter  
with ubuntu, and re-install/compile the current one form their site?
