And the fonts would fade to a light pale color from time to time throughout the DE environment?
Tried again with an install of Xfce F16. Install went well, good looking desktop environment. No fading fonts. But again, Scribus issue with exporting image, signal error
, then Scribus' crashes taking your work with it.
Not having this issue with Scribus 4.0 in Debian 6 (Gnome 2). Is this an issue with the newer linux kernel (F16) vs the older linux kernel (D6)? Anyone else having this crash when attempting image export in Scribus 4.0? This does not seem related to my older hardware, as everything else works great in Xfce F16.
Any additional information on this Scribus issue would be great. Scribus 4.0 is a must have application for me. And I would like to use Xfce F16, as I am moving on from this old hardware to a new notebook.
