Debian/Ubuntu packages don't have any ICC profiles packaged in them because
the license for the sRGB profile is incompatible with Debian's guidelines. So,
to get some profiles you can install my package icc-profiles. I'll add that

> I am using the same setup as you, and my colour management works fine,
> ie Ubuntu Hardy, with a version of 184.108.40.206 from Malex's repos.
> I think your problem is the same as I had. In debian/ubuntu that one of

> 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....
