I am the wrong John but I use Color management, a modified ICC profile
that meets LSI's limit on color density, and Scribus 1.5.0 which has
the PDF X/1-a format available. The profile is available here:
I always embed all fonts and always set up the Scribus OpenOffice CMYK
color palette before I start.
I understand that Scribus 1.3.9 is imminent. An upgrade to that level
will be useful, if it is convenient for your OS. I have 1.3.8 and the
testing version 1.5.0 which I download and recompile every night on my
Linux machine via a script that runs unattended in the wee hours.
Right now I am up to a version laid down on November 14, 2010, which
is recent enough for me!
The Scribus Manual is built around 22.214.171.124 or so but most of the
people who answer questions around here are up to 1.3.8 by now.
