    PageLayout for Linux?

    I've been searching through google but having little to no luck at finding a tool (freeware/shareware/commercial) that does page layout like Quark and/or Pagemaker. I don't believe that either are available for platforms other than Mac and Windows.

    I'm also looking for something that will publish files into PDF and other desktop publishing formats.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Adobe hat a FrameMaker 5.5.6 Beta version for Linux available for download and testing, but this ceased to exist
    http://www.adobe.com/products/framemaker/fmlinux.html
    The FrameMaker 6 is still available for Win, Mac and Unix
    To bad it's not for Linux

    However Scribus does,

    I think this is what you are looking for? I don't use it myself so don't shoot me if it's bad

    Looks interesting. At least it's better than nothing.

    Thanks for the link.
