For everyone that hasn't found the neat "Outline" font maker in Scribus:
Open your Properties window
Do some text, highlight it
Click on the "text" tab in the Properties window
Go to the styles and select the outline icon
now above that, set your line color (pencil)
set your fill color (bucket icon)

That should do it!
