I just discoverd Scribus. Desktop publishing for Linux.
It is a great program. Similar to MS Publisher.
Description: a free software desktop publishing program
Scribus is a free software layout program for GNU/Linux similar to a
couple of proprietary programs from Adobe and Quark.
Unlike other programs Scribus uses only Type1 fonts of the X-Server.
Therefore there is no fiddling around with installing extra fonts. For
this reason the number of fonts is a little bit limited, but you can be
sure that your monitor shows exactly the same as the printed output is.
Documentation for this package is available in either French, German or
English. Please choose your appropriate scribus-doc-XX documentation package.
