Scribus Portable 1.3.3.9 Pre-release 2

Now has a much better icon than the previous one.

Scribus Portable is the popular Scribus desktop publishing application in PortableApps.com format. Scribus is an open-source program that brings professional page layout to Linux/Unix, MacOS X, OS/2 and Windows desktops with a combination of "press-ready" output and new approaches to page layout. Plus, it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on, so you can publish files wherever you go.

Hmm

I'm unable to get a Windows 2000 computer to test on, but I'll take your word for it. I'll copy it across and it should be in the next pre-release. Smiling

Seems good to me

Cool - been using the "Portable Scribus" version for a while. Glad to see the the PAF preview version is a smaller download. Thanks for the work on it.

Trojan in the paf.exe

Hi,

installed Scribus Portable 1.2.2.9 Pre-release 2, but Avast found a trojan in one file. Please check this, thank you.

no problems found

Edit: 1.2.2.9 PRERELEASE2 ??? You meant Version 1.3.3.9 PRERELEASE2 - right?

I checked my installation of Scribus (made with the same Version of the Installer) with ClamWin and AntiVir, and there are no problems found - no Viruses, Trojans, or any other malware detected,...
So: Don't Panic, it seems to be a false alarm of your Virus scanner.

Which file?

in which file of your Scribus Portable has Avast found the Trojan?

By the way, i made a fresh download of 1.3.3.9 PRERELEASE 2 and scaned it with ClamWin and there was nothing found in it, too.

Win32:Agent-KGH [Trj]

Don't know whether it's a false alarm but Avast 4.8 gives Trojan Alarm (Win32:Agent-KGH [Trj])!!! So what could it be, do you think, is it really a virus or false alarm??

scribus 1.3.4 working so far

I installed the above 1.3.3.9 Pre-release 2 then I went into :\PortableApps\ScribusPortable\App\Scribus and deleted all the contents in that folder, then I copied all the contents in the C:\Program Files\Scribus 1.3.4 folder into :\PortableApps\ScribusPortable\App\Scribus. So far it's working Smiling

Try an online virus scanner

There are many posts regarding this issue. Try the search button top right corner and enter false positives. You should be able to find a more qualified answer there,
but the most common reply, is to scan the questionable app with some type of online scanners such as http://virusscan.jotti.org/ or http://www.virustotal.com/.

Wrong place

F:\PortableScribus1-3-3-12English.zip: W32.Autoit.Obfus-1 FOUND

Why are you asking here at PortableApps.com and not at the place you downloaded your file from?

  • Neither releases nor development tests at PortableApps.com are packed as .zip.
  • The scribus installer (as the vast majority of app installers here) uses NSIS, not Autoit.
  • The naming scheme used here is APPNAMEPortable VERSION, not PortableAPPNAMEVERSION.
  • If there are language specific versions, the two-letter abbreviation for the language is used (e.g. en, de), not the entire language name.
  • The development test last published at PortableApps.com was the one for v.1.3.3.9, not v.1.3.3.12.

As you see, the file is not from PortableApps.com. Consequently nobody here can tell you if there's a virus in your file.

Autoit is known to be used also by people producing malware to obfuscate their work, thus some virus scanners mark every autoit file as infected. Compare the results of an online test on sites like www.virustotal.com to decide whether it's infected or not.

And welcome to PortableApps.com Smiling

Why not released?

So if there is no problem with it, why is it not released yet?

It's been abandoned

The latest version of Scribus is 1.3.3.13.

You can get a portable version of 1.3.3.12 from here
http://www.quate.net/newsnet/read/31

and a portable version of 1.3.3.13 from here.
http://www.winpenpack.com/main/download.php?view.34

OK, it's not the beloved paf.exe format, but it works OK.

I don't think this app will be picked up here again, so we have to be content with these other sources.

paf.exe is much better

I am just a user and I express my opinion from the user point of view:

I compared the paf.exe version and for example the winpenpack version of other apps.
paf.exe is much quicker, smaller and reliable.
so why abandon this wonderful app?

Here's the thing

In order for one of these apps to be developed, a developer needs to adopt it and work on it.
The original developer has stopped working on it for some reason, and no other developer has come forward to champion it.

I agree, it's a wonderful app, but it's been 2 years since anyone has really touched it here, so I stopped asking.

We want Scribus

An we want it now Laughing out loud

Put the pitchfork and flame torches down I'm joking.

This is just another vote of interest in Scribus portable to assist any potential developers in gauging the interest in this app.

Release any time soon?

I am tired of fixing someone's computer. I am trying to convince her to switch entirely to PA. Scribus is one thing she uses. I almost have her using PA's Abiword, GIMP, and Firefox, this would only help my cause.

In short: I would feel a lot better and you would be saving me from a lot of trouble if this became a full fledged PA release.

Limits are for people with no imagination.

Well, there is the WinPenPack version

Not exactly in the Portable Apps format, but it is portable, and you just need to unzip it to its own folder under the PortableApps folder.
Don't worry, while the page is in Italian, the app is in English.

not the same

win pen pack is not the same quality as portable apps

and

now that also Inkscape is coming as a portable app
and GIMP is already there
you need only Scribus to have a complete graphics suite!

Take Over?

Ryan,

Can I take this over from you?

[EDIT] As a result of reading this, I've decided to take over portablization of Scribus. Stay tuned for more news soon.

Hope you can get this one up and running!

Scribus is a strange one, there seems to be some reluctance to bring it into the PA.c stable. I think because it's a QT app or something, I don't recall. Plus, somebody on quate.net is it? Has a portable version although last time I checked it hadn't been updated in ages.

It'd be great if you could do this, I think Scribus is great, so much better than trying to do flashy stuff in a word processor (which is not what a word processor is meant for)

Good luck!
