I've just compiled Scribus 0.9.10 on an old bastardized SuSE 7.0 installation, 
and come up against the same problem, namely that I can't type text into a 
text box - the keystrokes just appear to be ignored.

I can import text from a file, but it doesn't display correctly on this 
machine - there are large spaces between the characters at 100%, and at 200% 
it just displays boxes!

In reply to Franz's earlier comment, I know the locale settings on this 
machine are a bit screwed up - ever since I upgraded glibc so I could use 
WINE and nVidia GL properly - but because it hasn't yet impacted my 
day-to-day work it's never been fixed.

The other thing that might be significant is that I'm using Type1 fonts 
exclusively, no TrueType fonts yet...

I have a newer SuSE 8.0-based machine here, but I think I need to upgrade 
FreeType before I can compile Scribus on this machine - the compilation bombs 
out with:
charselect.cpp: In method `ZAuswahl::ZAuswahl(QWidget *, preV *, PageItem *, 
ScribusApp *)':
charselect.cpp:71: implicit declaration of function `int 
charselect.cpp:76: implicit declaration of function `int 

Unfortunately, I currently have very little time to investigate this further.

Anyway, it's great to see Scribus progressing so quickly :)

All the best,

When starting to calculate why your children went wrong, one of the things
that always seems to be neglected in such a listing is the important factor
called heredity.
