Appreciate your kind contribution. I'll do some more digging but, in
general, the instructions were to drag Scribus into "Applications" (or
Applicazioni as we call them here). There sits Scribus, hence - presumably
locatable, but, as I mentioned, without anything that looks as if it could
turn into an icon. There is a Scribus.exe, but that turns out to be a text
Glad I didn't throw away my Windows machine(!)
Are any Mac managers listening?

On my Linux system I can add a new icon to the bottom kicker by
clicking between icons and following the dialog for inserting a
non-kde application. Then I can scan for the proper icon and change
the default gear-wheel to the Scribus one.
This requires that I know where the Scribus program is located,
Linux and OS X are cousins in that both are descended from Unix. In
the case of OS X the immediate parent is BSD. I understand that OS X
does its best to hide the workings from the user. But there may be a
way on a command line to search for a program, e.g.
find / -name scribus
and when you have that location written down create an icon that calls
that program. Or possibly you can search the directory tree
graphically, find Scribus, and then drag and drop it on the desktop.
Someone who is familiar wth OS X can lead you better through the
jungle. My purpose is to elicit such better guidance from an OS X
