You'll need LittleCMS installed on your system. From the top menu bar, please go to the '''Help''' menu and select '''About Scribus'''. The splash screen will display with the infos on compiled version of Scribus. This should be followed by the 3 letters C-C-T that stands for the library support. If one letter is missing, ie. replaced by a *, it means it's not installed. C=Cups, C=LittleCMS, T=TIFF support. If you find out, that Littlecms is missing, you'll have to install it first together with its development libraries.

In order to use the color management in Scribus you'll need LittleCMS installed on your system. Our releases for Windows, Mac OS X, Haiku, OS/2 and eCS always include it. On Linux/UNIX it depends on the packagers, but our experience shows that in most – if not all – cases it will be automatically installed.
 
 
==Enabling color management==
 
* For Scribus => 1.2.3: go to '''Settings>Color Management''' and enable the checkbox '''Activate color management'''
 
* For Scribus => 1.3.1: go to '''Edit>Preferences...>Color Management''' and enable the checkbox '''Activate color management'''
 
 
 
==Getting and installing additional ICC profiles==
 
Scribus (since 1.2.3 respectively 1.3.1) already contains a few standard ICC profiles which are necessary to use the color management. However, you can add and use your own ICC profiles.
 
 
 
Adobe has released under very liberal licensing terms a group of CMYK press icm profiles.

System Requirements

In order to use the color management in Scribus you'll need LittleCMS installed on your system. Our releases for Windows, Mac OS X, Haiku, OS/2 and eCS always include it. On Linux/UNIX it depends on the packagers, but our experience shows that in most – if not all – cases it will be automatically installed.

Enabling the color management

In File > Document settings... > Color Management you can Activate color management for the current document (in the same section of File > Preferences... you can set the defaults for all future documents).


If you have Scribus 1.4 or newer, you can activate it and use the current settings by clicking on the small monitor in the lower right corner of the Scribus main window:

With a long click on the button, you will able to directly go to the color management settings for the current document.

Troubleshooting

If you're wondering if Scribus supports LittleCMS on your system go to the Help menu and select About Scribus. The splash screen will display some infos about how and when Scribus has been built. The Build ID will has a code where the first letter can be a C if LittleCMS is available or a * if it it's not the case. If Littlecms is missing, you can install together with its development libraries.

Getting and installing additional ICC profiles

Scribus contains a few standard ICC profiles which are necessary to use the color management. However, you can add and use your own ICC profiles.


To install additional ICC profiles

  • On Linux/Unix put your personal profiles into $HOME/.local/share/color/icc or $home/.color/icc (depending on the distribution and its version). System wide profiles for all users must be placed into /usr/share/color/icc.
  • On Windows Vista or 7, go to the Windows Control panel > Color management > All Profiles > Add
  • On Windows 2000, the correct location is C:\WINNT\System32\spool\drivers\color, and on Windows XP or later C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\drivers\color.
  • On Mac OS X copy profiles to /Library/ColorSync/Profiles for all users or Library/ColorSync/Profiles in your home directory.

Adobe has released under very liberal licensing terms a group of CMYK press icm profiles. These would be a good beginning default set of press profiles for Scribus if you are planning to send Scribus files (PS or PDF) to a commercial printer. These profiles include US, European and Japanese press defaults. http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/iccprofiles/win/AdobeICCProfiles.zip

From the European Color Initiative (ECI) you can get some brand new ISO 12647-2 compliant ICC profiles for offset printing output on. Currently does the ECI recommend the working colour space profile eciRGB_V2. They should reflect the capabilities of modern printing processes, but you have to check with your print shop. ECI Offset Color Standards

An alternative source for reliable profiles is colormanagement.org, a non-profit cooperation of color management experts.
