If you've ever wondered why people say tools like Scribus aren't ready for professional production work let me share this blog post by @davidrevoy


This should be a slam dunk. David knows what he's doing and One Bookshelf provides instructions that clearly show how to produce a PDF to their specifications.

We need to do better, folks. Color Profiles that work for everyone except FOSS tools are unacceptable. Period. There are no excuses for this.


@craigmaloney @davidrevoy

That is indeed an strange issue.

The icc-profiles-free package in and other free/libre system distributions also provide already free/libre profiles, and with argyll package's colprof command you can make the .TI3 files be useful even in . But all comes down to which color profile the *target printing device* uses. There was a conference in / about these issues. Print houses which don't provide the color profiles files, aren't good.

@craigmaloney @davidrevoy Also it's bad printing house if they request you the source files (instead of telling what needs to be fixed), or those that don't do print test runs.
