With no document open, go to file->preferences->Color 
Managment and then activate color management.

I like to use the ICC profile for print (bottom line) 
available from my web site at 
which meets one of the obscure requirements for LSI. You 
use a CMYK palette of course. 

I suggest that activating Color Management be the default 
in future versions of Scribus 1.5.0. 

And thanks for buying  the e-book!
