Description:

Scribus is an open source desktop page layout program with the aim of producing commercial grade output in PDF and Postscript.

Scribus can be used for many tasks; from brochure design to newspapers, magazines, newsletters and posters to technical documentation.

Scribus supports professional DTP features, such as CMYK color and a color management system to soft proof images for high quality color printing, flexible PDF creation options, Encapsulated PostScript import/export and creation of 4 color separations, import of EPS/PS and SVG as native vector graphics, Unicode text including right to left scripts such as Arabic and Hebrew via freetype. Graphic formats which can be placed in Scribus as images include PDF, Encapsulated Post Script (eps), TIFF, JPEG, PNG and XPixMap(xpm), and any bitmap type supported by QT4.

If you need to use the render frame install the texlive-latex-recommended package (suggested).

5 A very feature rich and powerful Desktop Publishing program. There is a bit of learning curve but there are lots of online tutorials to begin with. Once you get a feel then you become more productive. All the tools needed are there.

5 Full-strength DTP. Have made new converts of very experienced users of other DTP products.

4 I've installed v 1.4.5 and it is pretty effective once you get to grips with it. The issue is that there are no good tutorials written for new users. Like many things linux, if you can understand the technobabble, you probably don't need to read it anyway. What is needed is a simple step-by-step guide written for normal people by normal people! I might have a go!

4 As others have said, the 1.4.2 is behind the current stable (1.4.4); get from ppa instead. I make multi-page newsletters, posters, etc. Not the easiest software to learn, but PRO and powerful. Best on Linux, and only real free option.

2 1.4.2 is way behind the latest stable release. And it will not export to PDF at all in Linux Mint 17. Install via the direct stable ppa instead (ppa:scribus/pops)

4 Von den Funktionen her Top, aber in Aussehen und Bedienung noch etwas unausgereift - aber das wird sich bestimmt ändern. Ich nutze Scribus für absolut alles, was mit Layout zu tun hat, auch für unsere Schülerzeitung.

5 I've designed booklets with this programs. It has a learning curve (for me at least), but once you know it, it's really wonderful. It has some really professional features that makes the cooperation with printing companies easy.

5 We published a professional looking cookbook with over 700 full color images on 100+ pages. Scribus worked good. My graphic-artist-sister created a similar book in InDesign. It appeared to me that the performance of Scribus was better. Anyway, we published the book and it is selling well. Success! Thank you to all those who worked to create this program.

4 I have been using scribus 1.4 for some while on my XP machine, but when I converted my Laptop to Mint 12 iat the beginning of March 2012 I loaded as a Linux App. I think that its great and make quite a lot of things for my wife's card making. I also use it to make PDF files to load onto my iPod.

5 Excellent. Or at least excellent for the simple job I had to do, which was to create a 100+ page book with each page being a jpeg image of a discrete scanned page. Also excellent in that it's not resource hungry (like I expected any page layout program to be). Now I'm all enthusiastic to create a richly illustrated book with Scribus. Scribus, you rock. Well, the good guys who made it what it is rock.

4 I like Scribus for its purpose but I wish it was easier to use. My wife ended up using Microsoft Publisher and I can't blame her - the Scribus UI needs some careful improvements so the learning curve and usability doesn't stand in the way of new comers.

5 Good replacement for Adobe's PageMaker and Microsoft's Publisher. Version 1.3.9 (from GetDeb) is a nice improvement over the stock version from the repos. Not being able to support .PMD or .PUB files shouldn't be an excuse not to use this software, since neither PageMaker nor Publisher don't even support Scribus' native file format, either.

3 I was looking for a greeting card software like MS-Publisher from the old days. Scribus looks nice editing program. Gonna use it later for other applications then greeting cards. Perhaps one could do a poster with it. ...

5 Even as a Linux newbie - I love it! For some unknown reason, Open Office will not read any of my PDF files. They all pull up as though they are corrupted, even though they are viewable with the Document Viewer. Scribus swooped in to save the day, and have been able to recreate files that are essential to our small enterprise. The user interface is easy on the eyes, and it is not very difficult to figure out how to use all of its many applications. It does, emphasis on does, need a manual added to the Help section. That would make it just about perfect. Very easy to add fonts, very easy to alter image sizes, very easy to reposition text or images...

5 Scribus always gets added to new installs , should be a default. A great Desktop publishing app. Most folks don't realize how much easier it is to do layout work in a desktop publishing application as opposed to a word processor.
