  I'm sorry, I wasn't clear about using the desktop. I don't put images 
into a Scribus file on the desktop, rather I use the desktop 
like...well, like a desktop! I just park the images directly onto the 
desktop in a clear space, then use "get image" in Properties to suck 
them into my Scribus document, and then go to print (Brother MFC 240C - 
great printer, I bought two used at $29.95 each, ink cartridges  - 4 of 
them, on Amazon.com sometimes at 30¢ each, and approx. 400 copies each) 
then remove images from the desktop to the BULLETIN folder in My 
Documents. I park everything into folders in My Documents, and move it 
to Linux to use there also, using thumb drives - sneaker net. The 
Brother MFC 240C can be a bit tricky to set up in OpenSUSE Linux, but it 
eventually works using the lpd rpm driver format.
