Desktop Publishing

I have been asked to layout a newsletter for the local civic society as the usual person was too busy. Although I have an uninstalled copy of Microsoft Publisher somewhere, I had never used it before and wanted to find an open source alternative. Enter Scribus and GhostScript. In order to get this to work on Windows 2000, I also needed to download the GDI+ SDK.

Getting started was fairly simple, but in order to run the tutorials at docs.scribus.net I needed to download various ICC profiles and fonts

Simply extract the contents of the two ICC files into the /libs/profiles subdirectory of Scribus and extract the .ttf files from the Luxi fonts into your Fonts folder (Start>Settings>Control Panel>Fonts)
