Quite a hassle to upload the bug report, kept refusing to submit. Additional info that is not incorporated into the filed report.
Was using Scribus successfully when I had Debian Sid (unstable) loaded, that broke and had to load the stable version Wheezy and subsequently Scribus does not print. I can work around by saving to PostScript and print the .ps file.
Printer is an Epson WF-3520 which I bought for printing Avery L7656 84 labels per A4 sheet using colour swatches for resistor values - very tedious. Unsure if this is a Debian problem or down to the version of Scribus.
Its not uncommon that scribus does not print or does not print well.
Create the PDF (menu : File > Export > Export to PDF)
and print from PDF reader
is the way to do.
I forgot an important note, this is from the about box of Scribus:-
Scribus Version 1.4.1.svn
6 February 2012
Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.12.2
Using Ghostscript version 9.05
Do not know the version used in Debian Sid, but reckon this is possibly a little out of date.
There are subtle but minor colour changes when printing from the PDF export and the quality is lacking to the direct prints from Scribus. Thanks to JLuc for the tip.
