The problem is that Scribus colour management won't use profiles for
inkjet printers, and only shows the standard professional printers - not
a lot of good for us amateurs that don't have offset litho printers in
our bedrooms where we operate!

Is this fixed for 1.3.9, or is there a 'workaround'? It seems to be a
major drawback for people like me that only want a few copies, rather
than 1000 off from a print shop!
