I remember this problem from the last Debian Scribus package I
had installed. This doesn't occur when I install Scribus from
I haven't been using "official" package lately, since it tended
to be fairly out-of-date. But I suspect the missing plugins
problem is really a packaging fault. AFAICT in creating binary
packages, the Debian build system does a "dummy" install into (a
relative directory like) ./debian/tmp and then zips that up.
Scribus might be looking for its plugins in the packager's
./debian/tmp, or else the plugins failed to install in
./debian/tmp and thus were never packaged in the first place.
A command like "dpkg --contents scribus*.deb | grep charselect"
should check if the latter is the case.
