I think you might have misread Rolf's mail. The reason your install of
Scribus won't run for the user is because you built it as root! In
compiling a file, you MUST perform the first two commands as USER in
your shell, not ROOT! You can always check your status in the shell
with the command "whoami".
So if you just open a shell window, you are using it as user and should
After these two processes complete, you then log in as root with the
command "su" and then give your root password. This gives you temporary
root privileges to that shell and allows you to then finish the install
with "make install". You have to be root to install the files into root
directories, like /usr/local, otherwise you'll get an error if you try
this as user.
Once built and installed in this manner, any user should be able to use
