additionally to the problem Stéphanie has described, the print preview
on my archlinux machine isn't working has expected. I can only see the
CMYK plates in the print preview window although I have custom spot
colors in my document.
I'm running scribus 1.4.0 rc3 on archlinux with gosthscript 9.02. I have
tried with scribus svn compiled this morning and it is the same
situation (BTW it looks quite cool :)). However with debian and 1.4.0
rc3 it works well...
However I don't think it is related to our pdf export problem has I
didn't use my arch linux machine but my debian one in the first place...
