First a friendly request not to top post. Here is why:


First, we are about to release 1.4.0 in the next few days. So please
grab a copy of 1.4.0.rc1. It is *way* nicer, faster, more feature
complete. We will update all the download links and docs to reflect this

Second, you can start Scribus from a command prompt and use the -pi
switch to launch Scribus and see if the profile is being reject as
non-conformant. Example: C:\Program Files\Scribus-%version\Scribus.exe
- -pi or =h for all the options.

On launch, Scribus runs some basic tests to see if color profiles are
basically sane before using them. Marti Maria, who is the author of
littlecms which Scribus uses for color management estimates 20-25 of the
color profiles shipped with hardware is defective somehow or another.

Moreover, we disable these defective profiles as they can cause crashes
in Scribus, as well as problems downstream when embedded into a PDF or
Postscript file.

If you wish, you can forward the profile in question for more detailed
analysis with some special tools we developers use for color management.

Hope that helps,
