[scribus] Introduction & Printing guides

Hi all. I'm a 27 years old graphic design student based in Argentina, at 
the University of Art and Design of Oberá, state of Misiones. I use 
GNU/Linux from redhat 4.8 (i guess the first attempt to bring gnu to the 
masses) and now my main OS is Archlinux. I work entirely with open 
source software Gimp, Inkscape, Blender, Scribus. Well, enough of 
introductions and go to the point. I need to do some sketches for a 
project i'm about to make, and i'm wondering if there's a way of "print" 
the guides and the "no printing objects" to a PDF file (maybe to print 
it in a greaseproof paper). I do some research and came to this script 
developed by a user called a.l.e. 

Now in Scribus, importing it and executing throws me an error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

   File "", line 8, in

   File "/home/gabo/guides.py", line 30

     scribus.setFillColor('Black', rectangle) scribus.setLineColor('Blue',


SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I want to know if somebody has used it before or has another turnaround to work with printed guides.
Well, thanks in advance and sorry about my English.
