Hi Ben,

did you get scribus to embedd the fonts in the PDF file ? - when you use 
file/export/pdf a window of options appears, choose the 'font' tab and make 
sure that 'embed all fonts' is checked.

this worked for me in a recent document where i'd downloaded the gothic news 
fonts especially for the piece of work.

good luck
