I'd actually prefer to use Linux, but my current Linux installation is
running as a vm with Virtualbox on Windows XP. The XP Scribus is slow
enough as it is on my slowish machine, and it would be worse running in
As my monitor is calibrated, images on the screen are pretty accurate.
Scribus can't use my inkjet profiles, therefore I can't pass the
profileling information to the printer, and if I export to a PDF, again
the profiling information doesn't get embedded in the file.
Is there any way I can get my inkjet profiles passed to my printer?
