Hi John,

Not true for me, as described here:


The full colour PDF/X-1a:2001 which Scribus 1.5.0 produced was rejected by LSI.
The only way *I* was able to get a PDF accepted by LSI was to use the free
trial of Acrobat/Distiller direct from Adobe. I really didn't want to go the
extra mile of having to use Windows for the export, but it was the *only* way
that I was able to get LSI to accept my file.

YMMV, of course, as mine clearly did :-)
