Yes I have it turned on, I have also used about very combination of 
settings that I can think of.
I have read the online manual about colour management, I understand 
about colour management.
I have also read about colour management and profiles from the 5 links I 
was offered on the forum.
My problem is not about understanding colour management, my problem is 
understanding how to get Scribus to work.

find which one.

what's the point of using a high end tool if you're not going to use one 
of it's best features?
So, I need for someone to look beyond trying to teach me everything 
there is to know about colour management, which I've got coming out of 
my ears, and help me understand why the program isn't accepting the 
If it helps, here's a screenshot to show the preferences.
