The problem was that I didn't even have "scribus-ng" built for sarge until
late last night when I read a log of your conversation with mrdocs in
IRC channel. Now I do have such a package in our repositories, so you can
install it. Try refreshing your package database (apt-get update) and
installing Scribus 1.3 (apt-get install scribus-ng) again. I just tested the
installation in my sarge build chroot and it went fine. Frankly, I thought
nobody would be using Scribus 1.3 on Sarge because it has older libfreetype6
(2.1.7) and other things and my understanding is that Scribus works better
with Etch/Sid versions of such libraries i.e. there can be glitches when
old libraries. You are quite welcome to try getting your job done on Sarge,
course. I just want to caution you that dist-upgrading to Etch could be a
possibility if you hit a problem related to Sarge's old libraries. Etch is
close to becoming new stable that you shouldn't run into any strange
