|Scribus 1.5.1svn running on Fedora 23|
After several trials rebuilding Scribus 1.5.1 using Tom "Spot" Callaway's spec file, the effort and patience finally paid off. The rpm version successfully compiled (I had to disable the devel package due to some odd built issue I have yet to find out) and is now available for Fedora 22, 23 and Rawhide under COPR repository.
The reason for usinig the latest development version is mainly due to features not found on stable release which no longer cuts it:
- Cleaner user interface
- Better table implementation
- Orphan and widow control for better typography
- Ability to open/import other desktop publisher application like Adobe InDesgin, Quark Express and Microsoft Publisher
- Better import of Adobe Illustrator files
- ...and more
Download it, play with it, use it and report the issue to developers to make Scribus a better Desktop Publisher.
