Hi Nigel

I am using the same setup as you, and my colour management works fine, 
ie Ubuntu Hardy, with a version of from Malex's repos.

I think your problem is the same as I had. In debian/ubuntu that one of 
the reqd cms libs isnt pulled in at the time. You may want to check that 
the suggests or recommends packages are also installed.

I posted to the list about this problem probably about a year or so ago, 
so you may find the answer in the archives.

I think Malex changed his packages so that scribus has a suggested 
package. Right click using synaptic and select suggested packages 
against the littlecms and scribus packages.

Additional -> I've just checked in Synaptic and you also also need the 
iccprofiles package, which doesnt get pulled in by Scribus/littlecms by 
the look of it.

Hope this helps....

Kind regards
