This is how I got fonts to work in Ubuntu Feisty:

Open terminal. Type sudo nautilus. Enter password when prompted.
When Nautilus opens navigate to home/[user]/fonts
Assuming you have placed your recently downloaded fonts on the desktop,
simply drag them into the fonts window. Close Nautilus and restart
Scribus. Your fonts should now be visible to Scribus. If not try logging
out and then logging in again. Open Scribus and you should have your
fonts available.
Hope this works for you. I went through hours of pain trying to install
fonts in Feisty, but you have to do it as root or it won't work.
Good luck.
