What do you mean by "downloaded"? Right now, as far as I know the only 
way to install scribus on Mac OS X is via Fink (AquaScribus is an Aqua 
program to launch the scribus binary installed by Fink). Do you have 
Fink installed? If yes, you have the choice between
- installing a precompiled version of scribus-1.1.5 (1.1.7 will be in 
the next binary distribution, due in one or two weeks)
- or installing scribus-1.1.7 from source (automatic procedure that 
involves compiling)

In both cases, the downloading is automatically taken care of.

If you don't have Fink yet, download the installer from
