Here's another piece of data. I installed scribus 18.104.22.168 on yet
another Windows XP system and printed the test file to a HP C5180
inkjet printer and it worked OK. Both printers I tried initially
were both PostScript printers. Could it be that there might be
a problem with scribus sending directly to PostScript printers.
Does anyone have a PostScript printer they can try?
