I am running Ubuntu 11.10 with Scribus 1.4.0.rc3 and created a photo book that I would like to get printed now. From what I understand I should be using PDF/X-3 as compatibility level for the pdf export.

However even after following the instruction on the scribus1 site to activate color management I can't seem to be activating the option. It never shows up in the compatibility drop down for the pdf export.

What am I missing?

Okay.. so I figured it out myself. It is important to turn on color management for the current document. This is done in File - Document Setup - Color Management. Changing it in File - Preferences - Color Management like described everywhere I found only affects new documents and not already existing ones.
