Hi a.l.e and the rest of the list,

Ah, that's right. I actually mixed up what I'm actually trying to fix: I 
want my LaTeX frames to be vectorized, since they otherwise look a bit 
unsharp in the output PDF (and based on things I found on the net, the 
embedding option is supposed to fix that issue).

Per Dave's instruction, I attempted to add both the stable and unstable 
scribus.net/debian repositories. However, both complained of unmet 

for unstable:
     "The following packages have unmet dependencies:
          scribus : Depends: libfontconfig1 (>= 2.9.0) but 
2.8.0-3ubuntu9 is to be installed
                        Depends: libtiff4 (> 3.9.5-3~) but 
3.9.5-2ubuntu1 is to be installed"

for stable:
     "The following packages have unmet dependencies:
          scribus : Depends: libpython2.6 (>= 2.6) but it is not 

Would stable do for enabling the PDF/EPS embedding feature, or do I need 
unstable as Dave was using? Do you have any hints for what I can do to 
add the official debian repository and make it all work?
