I am not noticing that problem here.  The Scribus fonts look
the same as do the rest of the system.  I am using KDE and assume
you are as well?  If you are using Gnome, then it's quite possibly a
problem there.  There are some fonts they recommend to use for display
and I don't remember if in that font package there is a patch or fix for 
It sounds like you have everything installed and up to date, so all your 
should be displaying corrrectly in Scribus too.
