Fedora :: Using Scribus In Editing Work Of Fiction

Dec 21, 2010

I am transferring from Word into Scribus a 20 chapter novel and would welcome some guideance. There are no images, only text. I do have the Scribus Offical Manual but find sections of it confusing. Can someone give me some guidance on:use of Master Pages. Do I have to set up a separate one for each chapter? Will this allow me to insert page numbers in the header area?Will I have to link the text frames (pages) of each chapter?

Debian Multimedia :: Scribus Crash When Editing Text

Jul 20, 2015

I use Scribus 1.4.4 without any changes from the Debian stable repository.

Each time when I edit text in the layout mode (not in the text editor) the program crashes with a "signal #11" message:

Code: Select all$ scribus
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
Scribus Crash
Scribus crashes due to Signal #11
Calling Emergency Save
Segmentation fault

On Wheezy I was using Scribus also, but without such problems. Unfortunately I often need to use the text editing in the layout mode in order to adjust the text flow for the final layout.

Debian Multimedia :: Scribus Crashes When Editing Text In Layout Mode

Sep 29, 2015

I use Scribus for designing leaflets and broshures. Unfortunately with the most recent version in the stable branch the program crashes each time I try to edit text in layout mode. I didn't have this problem in older versions. So I wonder if this is a bug others noticed in Scribus 1.4.4 on Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 32-bit.

For normal text editing I use the text edit mode anyway but when I try to fix line breaks it's always hard to not instantly see what I am doing. So even if I just want to insert a single character the program crashes with the following message: Scribus crashes due to Signal #11

Fedora :: Scribus 1.4.0 RC1 Not In Updates Testing

Feb 19, 2011

It was released a couple days ago, and the Scribus team always sends new releases to Fedora, but on my Fedora 14 x86_64 computer I can't find it in updates-testing:

# yum install scribus --enablerepo=updates-testing
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
updates-testing/metalink | 15 kB 00:00
updates-testing | 4.7 kB 00:00
updates-testing/primary_db | 880 kB 00:00
Setting up Install Process
Package scribus-1.3.9-1.fc14.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

I can always download the RPM and install it directly, but I prefer to use yum. Did the updates-testing people misplace it? Or did the Scribus team forget to send it to Fedora?

Ubuntu :: Scribus Doesn't Look Native

Apr 27, 2011

Today I did a fresh install of 11.04 (beta), but I have the same problem on my 10.10 box too. However, I know it's not right, since my laptop and upstairs box (both running 10.10) look fine.The problem is that Scribus looks like a Windows 95 application. I assume that the problem may be with the Qt support.I installed the Qt setting manager and set the theme to GTK+, but it had no effect.

OpenSUSE :: Suse 11.4: Scribus 1.4.0 RC1 Buggy -> Update?

Apr 9, 2011

someone decided for whatever reason to ship Suse 11.4 with a broken version of Scribus. Not only is the application missing in the KDE-Menu after installation (had to add it manually) but it is crashing frequently. Whenever one adds new text in a Textbox (which will NOT be formated with the specified default font but the first in the list) and then immediately changes the font without first leaving the input-focus of that box: Segfault / signal 11. I understand that there is a RC2 out by now and the specific error seems to be fixed by that.

Now my question is: After having decided to ship sUSE 11.4 with a RC: Will further RCs and maybe the final release of scribus be shipped by the OpenSuse Update? Or does the user have to manually install a working version of that software?

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Editing - Editing Directly To /boot/grub/grub.cfg?

Jun 6, 2010

I have an old laptop that I installed EasyPeasy Lucid on. I have never used Grub2 as my other Ubuntu installs still use Grub Legacy. I have studied all the tutorials which instruct that the grub.cfg file should not be edited directly.This old laptop has one of the dreaded Intel graphics chips for which the kernel automatically loads the i915 module. Of course (like a multitude of others with Intel graphics and Lucid) I booted into a black screen but knew the workaround was to enable mode setting through grubI used the

Fedora :: PDF Editing Fail

Aug 27, 2011

I searched the Internet for software that is compatible with Linux and is capable of editing PDF documents. This is not counting anything that doesn't allow PDF as both an input and output. Also not counting anything that imports a PDF into some sort of image file, whereupon it loses all track of textual content. Found a grand total of one product, PDF Edit.

Installed PDF Edit. Easy. Tried just using it without reading instructions. Not intuitive. Googled and followed the instructions to edit my document. Not happening. Says my document is read only which it's not. Says it's linearized. Maybe so, but Acrobat never complained. Researched some more. Must de-linearize. Did that. Now technically I can edit the text content fields of the document but when I try that, the changes don't appear on the screen. All I really want is to place some annotation text boxes in my document, type information into them so it looks right on the screen, save and print it. Gave up on PDF Edit.Also attempted Acrobat 8, Acrobat 9, Nuance PDF Converter 4, and PDFill PDF Editor, in Wine, each attempt a similar nightmare.Will some kind soul suggest something, or show me the error of my ways? I really like Fedora and it seems a shame to scurry back to XP for this minor task.

Fedora :: Photo Editing Choices For KDE?

Jun 7, 2011

I'm looking for some simple to use photo editing software for KDE. I don't really need the GIMP. I just want to do some simple auto-enhancement, rotating, and resizing. Pretty simple stuff. I'm trying to install Shotwell right now. I've used it on Gnome installs, (Ubuntu refugee), but I was wondering if there is a similar native KDE application.

Fedora :: Editing A 26 Gigabyte Text File?

Jul 15, 2009

I did a pg_dump of our data warehouse, and it is 26 gigabytes. I wanted to load this data into a different database product (one that forked from Postgresql, so its syntax is very similar).I needed to change the syntax of the "COPY" command in the pg_dump output, remove references to "public", and change the table owner name. sed did these for me (albeit slowly). The output from pg_dump is a file called "pg-dump-output.sql".

pg_dump produces this:

Fedora :: Editing Activities / Applications Menu In F15?

Jun 3, 2011

Recently made the switch to F15 and GNOME3. The changes are a little jarring, but I'm trying to have some good faith, see how I adjust to things, etc. Any ways, the applications menu (in "fallback" mode) or the 'activities -> applications' menus (in "full" mode) have every application I've ever installed, some times poorly classified. I'd like to edit these, making more minimal menus.

There is, of course, the "alacarte" application. While it runs just fine -- the changes are not reflected in the menus (in either mode). One could manually edit the desktop configuration text files, I assume, but as much work as I need to do -- I was hoping for a GUI application. Does an alternative exist? or a way to interface them?

Fedora Installation :: Editing Boot INI File To Detect F12?

Jan 6, 2010

Problem is to boot fedora. On my system I have 3 HDD
on 1st - 2 partition (1)XP (2) free space for data NTFS
on 2d - 1 partition (1) Win Serv 2003
on 3d - 3 partitions (1) free space for data NTFS (2) /boot (3) Fedora 12

After installation boot manager doesn't see fedora! Only give me option to run XP or 2003. Another problem Fedora 12 Live CD doesn't work for my graphic. I see some quick text after lanch and then black screen but still understand that there going some processes under that black screen, than it looks like stop and w8 for my decision which I cant make cause don't see what is there going on. So there no chance to get under linux after instalation and no chance using live CD to install GRUB and I need some how edit boot.ini in windows to make it appear fedora in boot menu.

My current boot.ini looks like that:
[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition" /noexecute=optout /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
how should looks 3d line?
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(3)Linux="Fedora 12" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
like this?

Fedora :: Dual Boot - Editing Menu.lst For Windows?

Jun 24, 2011

I've had Fedora 14 installed for some time now, but decided I needed dual boot for some things I have that are built only for windows and need usb support.

I installed windows to hd0,4 but when I edit a windows 7 entry in grub, as:

title windoze 7
root (hd0,4)

then boot it, it doesn't find it.

It was actually the 4th partition, so hd0,3 not hd0,4 I apparently also needed to put in "Chainloader +1" too... what ever that does...

Fedora Installation :: Editing Partions For Additional Hard Disks?

Apr 30, 2009

I have three hard disks in my PC , hda is used for /, /home, /boot and swap. Everything seems to setup fine here I then have partitions sdb1 and sdc1. On the edit partion options for these hard drives I can set the mount point. I have never seen this before with the other distros I have used and usually have to mess around with fstab after install to mount these disks, so was pleased to see this option.

Under my previous install (Debian, which I didn't use for long) I had these drives mounted under /media/store1 and /media/store2. This is reflected in the "Edit Parition: /dev/s***" options where the "Original File System Label" is shown as store1 and store2 for each disk

Fedora :: Nano - Editing Lines That Go Past The Window Edge?

Nov 22, 2009

I noticed a problem when editing files with nano. This problem happens if the terminal window that I run nano from is not wide enough to show the full line.By way of example below is part of my grub.conf


title Fedora (
root (hd0,13)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=47e4c448-8087-4ec6-a67b-814845a598db noiswmd LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us vga=0x370 nouveau.modeset=0
initrd /boot/initramfs-

If we assume the code box above is the size of the terminal window, if I edit anything past what will show as the $ sign in nano, it will automatically add a carriage return. So if we take the kernel line above, if say the screen shows at the end root=UUID=$, if say I were then to add 00 the end of the UUID, it will move everything starting from root=UUID= to a new line. Is there some wrap feature that is enable in Fedora for nano?

Fedora Installation :: Editing Fstab / Disks.txt And Mounts.txt After Live CD Install?

Jan 19, 2010

I have installed Fedora 12 i686 Live to a 200 mb partition on an external drive. Before the install I created a 6.7 GB ext3 partition and a 45 GB ext3 partition. The live cd copied the image to a 200 mb partition.

partition 2bce0f9d-53a6-4ec2-b5ad-1a6915c74260 is 45 GB
partition 4683EB23BED2EB34 is 102.6 GB NTFS
partition b7240ff1-0807-42ba-e172-bff5872519ad is 6.7 GB


Will creating an entry in fstab sdb6 and sdb8 allow the fedora distrib dvd to install to the external hd? How do I create the entries?
I have a raid0 hd with windows xp pro. When i try to shrink the partition using anaconda, I get a disk error and the comper locks up. I have to shut off the ups to reboot.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unusual Grub In Minimal Bash Like Line Editing Mode

Jun 14, 2010

I have installed RHEL5, solved the problems around it and started to set up the GRUB. I have set the menu.lst with simple
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

and tried to boot the Win7 on that partition. NO LOADER came up and since that moment
Grub is only in "Minimal BASH-like line editing" mode. I have tried all of I have googled, nothing have worked. There is a problem with even finding /boot/grub/stage2, or anything else, grub won't let me mount any partition. When I try to find any file, it says file not found. It is important to say that all I did to cause this was change in menu.lst
rootnoverify (hd1,1) to rootnoverify (hd1,0)m nothing else! There is no logic in this....
