<h2>Requirements</h2>
4
<p>The programs you will need to compile Scribus are:</p>
5
<ol>
2568 mrdocs 6
        <li><strong>For Scribus 1.2.x+ GCC 3.x+ is required, GCC 3.2+ is strongly recommended</strong>. The Scribus Team has tested compiling with GCC 3.4 or GCC 4.0 and recommends its use, if available, for the performance benefits.</li>
559 cbradney 7
        <li>autoconf 2.53+</li>
8
        <li>automake 1.6.3+</li>
9
</ol>
10
The dependencies for compilation, and also to run Scribus are:
11
<ol>
2568 mrdocs 12
        <li>Qt 3.3.0+, both the runtime libraries and development libraries. We recommend using Qt 3.3.4+.</li>
1216 subik 13
        <li>Python and python-devel libraries 2.3+. You can disable Python support with <code>configure --without-python</code>.</li>
2293 cbradney 14
        <li>Freetype2 2.1.3+. Due to various freetype2 bugs, we recommend, if your distro/OS allows, to use 2.1.9+</li>
2372 mrdocs 15
        <li>libart_lgpl 2.3.10+, 2.3.17+ recommended.</li>
559 cbradney 16
        <li>libxml 2.6+.</li>
2568 mrdocs 17
        <li>Ghostscript &gt; Ghostscript 7.07+ or AFPL Ghostscript 8.51+ is highly recommended.</li>
696 cbradney 18
        <li>Postscript-Fonts. TrueType Fonts. Scribus also can support OpenType fonts both TrueType and Type 1 Outline OpenType Fonts in 1.1.1+.</li>

<p>Scribus will run under most any window manager and does not require KDE
21
itself. However, drag and drop functionality will be lost without KDE. One
22
of the Scribus developers runs Gnome. The author of this documentation has
23
made a point of testing each release of Scribus under Blackbox as well.
24
This has shown no incompatibilities or problems for Scribus, except for
594 cbradney 25
the loss of drag and drop functionality.</p>

<p>If color management does not work, you may not have installed the
27
development libraries for littlecms. When downloading the package from
28
littlecms the make files are already configured for Linux, so compiling is
29
straight forward. You also need at least one RGB profile and one CMYK
30
profile installed or the color preferences and options will not appear in
31
the menus. On Red Hat and Mandrake 9.x you may have to type export
32
LDFLAGS=&quot;-lm&quot;, just before compiling or littlecms may not link correctly
1520 mrdocs 33
to Scribus. This issue has been fixed in littlecms 1.10+ and in Scribus 1.2.x</p>

<p>Testing suggests setting the correct &#034;-march=&#034; CXXFLAGS has a very
35
benefitial effect on Scribus performance. For example, if you have a Duron or Athlon processor, using <code>export
572 cbradney 36
CXXFLAGS=&#034;-march=athlon&#034;</code> would be of benefit. Check if your distribution sets these for you and how they are set, and for further information see:
