[scribus] Unknown Exception Error - help?

For printing purposes I use 300 dpi. Most printers (in my case a HP laserjet
are printing quite well). This works quite well, apart from having massive
files as a result. You might try to manually convert the delivered pdf's to
Tiff. I have no idea if this could be the cause of the problem, I use PNG
images myself.

Hi Ermin,

It looks like we're using the same settings with two exceptions:
 * In my export attempt, pictures are set to 600dpi (because the image 
quality really matters in my hardcopy prints.) I don't know if this is 
causing the problem. I could try reducing it.
 * The other possibility I can think of is that my preflight gives a 
complaint about embedded PDFs as images.  I could change this by 
demanding that my advertisers supply tiff instead of PDF to me, but they 
don't want to, and so I don't want to ask it of them.  I hope that isn't 
the problem, since they all universally prefer to give me PDFs. 

I used these same PDF advertisements last month, and also the same image 
file setting, with no problem.

I wonder if zipping the files up and transferring them to the UNIX box 
would help.
