creating a business card layout in linux.


i need to create a few business card layouts for a friend. Would Scribus be a good choice for such a task? Or would someone suggest something better? I have never used Scribus before.

There's this:

http://gnomefiles.org/app.php?soft_id=254

I haven't installed it so your guess is as good as mine as
far as function.

It's in the menus for "New" on the writer portion of OO.

File->New->Business Cards

I would also second using Glabels or openoffice.org, they seem to just work fine for me.
