I have never been able to print directly from my Ubuntu installation.  It
appears it would print if I had an Postscript printer but I don't have one.
Therefore, I have to export to a pdf and then print the pdf externally to
Scribus.  Let me know if you have been able to print from your Linux distro
in the past.

Ian, John:

I am not sure why you would even want to print directly from Scribus. For me, at least, the whole purpose of using Scribus is to do a layout in order to create a PDF document for printing (in my case, usually at a photo copy centre).  If I am at an intermediate stage in creating a document and want to see how it would look on paper, I just create a temporary PDF. If printing directly from Scribus "worked" (and I don't know whether it does or not on my version, 1.4.0.rc4 on Kubuntu 11.04)  worked, I probably would not use it as I wouldn't trust it to look exactly like the PDF file I would eventually want to create.
