MX 17 Repository: The Scribus-ng Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Wed Dec 20, 2017 5:19 pm

We now have Scribus-ng 1.5.3, from upstream Debian, rebuilt in our test repository. It is the next-generation version of the popular Scribus desktop publishing application. Please note that files from the -ng version are not backwards compatible with the 1.4.X Scribus versions.

Thanks Stevo !
Tried it on the tabloid I created over the last 2 days. Everything seems to work fine and the problem of the file/folder management icons that I reported when using the AppImage are not a problem in this version. The only "strange" thing I notice in both the AppImage and -NG is that the keyboard shortcut for "Preview Mode" -- Ctrl+Alt+P -- does not work although Alt+P and Ctrl+P do work. The work around I did is to change the shortcut to Ctrl+Alt+B in the preferences dialog.

Hello Stevo,
Thanks a lot for your work!

I am a heavy user of Scribus 1.4.6 and 1.5.3 on MX17.1.
On both version of Scribus the spelling checker is not working. The check spell option on menus is not being displayed and the keyboard shortcuts do not work neither. I have exactly the same issue which is on this thread https://www.linuxquestions.org/question ... page4.html.
I checked the dictionaries on folders and reinstalled both versions many times. Everything seams to be in order.
Is it possible the libhunspellpluin.so is not included on the MX 17 compilation of Scribus? if so, do you think can it be added?

I am willing to fix this issue soon.
Thanks,
Manzana

Hi Stevo,

I just upgraded Scribus 1.4.6 to 1.4.7 via MX Package Installer. The spellcheck works!!! :number1:

Thank you so much!

Hi Stevo,

Scribus 1.4.7 works flawlessly. I've been using it for a month with complex documents (3 languages, 4 or more layers, many typefaces, EPS and high quality photos, many built-in polygons, few extension scripts, and several different profile PDF outputs)

Thanks,
Manzana
