In general, just delete your Scribus install directory and re-run `make
install'. For that matter, simply deleting the offending plug-in should

Oh, that's not ideal at all.
You really should try to avoid using the root account for any sort of
day to day work. Use your normal user home directory, and use `sudo' to
gain temporary root priveleges when needed.
I'd very very very strongly recommend re-installing Scribus somewhere
like /usr/local or a subdirectory of your normal user account. You can
control where it gets installed with the --prefix= argument (configure)
or -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX= (CMake) .
I prefer to install Scribus into my home directory, eg set the install
prefix to $HOME/scribus-18.104.22.168 ... but installing in /usr/local is
also quite conventional.

As above advice.
