Summary0006477: Canvas refresh is very slow
DescriptionA few months ago I switched to Ubuntu (I have
the latest version, 7.10 / Gutsy). And I have
Scribus v. (it came from Debian
Scribus repositories).

The problem I have is that screen refreshing is very slow, just like in the old days of Scribus. It takes well over a second for a page to get repainted. This is quite seriously impeding my work with the program. BTW, this happens even if I have only a single page with two columns of text on it.

Is this a known issue? Would it be related to the fact that Ubuntu is
GNOME-based? Are you aware of any settings I may play with to make Scribus repaint faster?
TagsNo tags attached.

This doesnt sound like any Scribus related issue given the number of pages you are talking about if you have had better performance on this same machine.

Yes I did have better performance but with earlier versions (1.2.x). And my machine is generally fairly decent, I upgraded the memory over the summer, and the processor is a P4 2GHz. No other apps are sluggish.

I posted here hoping that maybe someone else had a similar problem. Or that there is a config switch of some kind somewhere...

The other thing I find confusing are the versions: why the only Debian package available is a "cvs" (i.e. development) version? Is there a "stable" binary release for Ubuntu? Should I try building from the latest stable sources?

Slow refresh seems to be related to text rendering. Pages without text experience no slowdown, on pages with text everything works slower, even object selection.
