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
a vm.

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?
