When I try to open the following file in Scribus 188.8.131.52SVN on openSUSE
11.0, with Qt3.3.8b I get the following error. I sent up Adobe 8.1.2
01/15/2008 I get the following error: i have set up adobe reade as per
your help screens for Adobe Reader 8. File
is not in an acceptable format. I am trying to import the PDF to Scribus
since I lost the original Scribus file.

You cannot normally open a PDF for editing in Scribus. That said its
possible to import a PDF, but your mileage may vary. Anyway its not a
very good way to try it.
But, I would suggest to use Inkscape 0.46 (it must be 0.46 or newer!),
and use their nice new shiny PDF import facility, which works really,
really, really well. Then you can save to svg, eps, and import these
into Scribus instead. Even the text can come in as editable text if you
want it to.
It wont necessarily be perfect, but will get you quite a long way.
