MEPIS defaults to KDE, Mint to Gnome. That's probably the difference I'm seeing, though there should be some design work unique to the distros as well.

I was told that there were mainly some GTK libraries that were required, and that PageStream would run fine under KDE if the libraries required for the GIMP were loaded. MEPIS comes with the GIMP, so should be ready for PageStream. Is Scribus the same -- works with either but a bit better with one or the other?
