Try using another font. I think there was an issue that is now fixed with regards to certain fonts.

I've tested it with Utopia, URW Bookman L Demi Bold,
Courier Regular (works), Arial Narrow Regular &
Bold, Palatino Linotype Bold Italic, Italic and
Regular (doesn't).

In this particular case, changing the font is a barely
acceptable solution.

Problem is, for certain fonts, the generated PostScript
does not include in the font's dictionary the glyph
definition for "9" (i.e., G57). That's strange, as
Scribus looks smart enough to only include glyphs for
characters actually used.

Since actually including "9" somewhere in the document
apparently fixes the problem (in fact I'm including a
white-on-white "9" in the first page as a workaround),
is it possible the auto-numbering code is not marking
"9" as "used" for some fonts?

1- I could never use Control-# for inserting the page #
marker, had to define a new shortcut instead
2- I discovered the hard way that the page marker must
be used more than once with >9 pages, otherwise only the
first digit appears. I can't see the advantage of this
approach, since it forces the the page/template designer
to foresee the maximum number of pages and does not give
more lay-out control (if I use "X####Y", page 13 shows
as "X13Y", not "X 13Y")

Yeah the control # doesnt always works and depends on the keyboard layout and WM used.

Ill have a play, maybe it is the case if the glyphs arent used elsewhere they are missed somehow.

Confirmed. At page 9 I got a missing error and page 19 it just didnt show.
