Thank you for this hint, Bert.
In my Scribus, Fogra39L would be in the list of profiles if Color
Management was activated. Color Management is not activated, and as far
as I remember, it wasn't on the old system.
By the way, Scribus itself offers "Artifex CMYK SWOP Profile" as
default, but maybe it's just because it's the first one in the list.
There are quite a lot of different options to be adjusted when I
activate color management, and I really don't know what to choose for
any of them. It always ran out of the box, so I never cared.
Maybe the reason is in Ubuntu's printing system which is completely
different (if not only newer) than on the old Suse system. But on the
other hand, Ubuntu is so popular that I would expect more people to run
into problems here.
