This sounds like you compiled the source as root and when trying to
start in your user login, doesn't have permissions to the X display. 
You can test this theory by using a shell/console and type scribus. 
You'll probably get the error, so login the shell as root with "sux",
which gives the root access to the X display, and it should start up.

The only thing you do as root when compiling is the "make install" part,
all others, ./configure & make, are done as user only.  Recompile the
whole thing correctly and I'll bet your problem goes away.
