Thanks very much for your replies.

I honestly can't say I'm going to be able to digest the 100 page SNAP PDF, but
I do appreciate the link. No doubt I'll RTFM my way through it when I've got
some time, although I suspect it's of more use to someone familiar with the
nitty-gritty of DTP Scribus/PDF/postscript/colour profiles and exports etc.
than a mere end-user like myself.

What I was really after was the "press the red button" answer ;-)

For the record, I'm using SuSe Linux 12.1 on x86_64.
