You can get the latest scribus release for Ubuntu Dapper and Edgy (should work
on Feisty, too). Please go to http://debian.scribus.net. If the instructions
are not clear please tell me, so I could improve them. There is indeed an
Ubuntu qt3-related issue with number input fields in the properties palette,
but there are workarounds described in the bug report mentioned in this
thread. And this issue will go away once we make a change to qt4 as our
testing showed.



Your friendly Debian/Ubuntu Scribus packager.
