Hello Caleb:

As you probably know, Xandros has Scribus 1.0.1 available on their site.
If you try to use the Tar file from Xandros 1.1.6 or the .rpm file or 
.deb file, you will probably have to get certain libraries. This may be 
easier to do than to compile (see below). But compilation is worth it 
for the long term.

I tried compiling Scribus 1.1.6 but found I needed a compiler, then then 
compiler had to be on the PATH.... then of course you will have to get 
'qt3' from troll-tech to do the other parts of the compilation. I know 
this would take some time.... so....

So I ended up going to my Mandrake 9.2 for compilation and runing there...
Since the right compiler and qt was already there.

Eventually, I hope to get the compiler and qt3 working on Xandros....
