[Scribus] Font trouble on MDK10 official

Fellow Scribus Users,
	I'm having trouble getting Scribus (1.1.6 & 1.1.5) to run on MDK10 
official. This was not a graphical machine initially, I've installed X, 
Qt, and some fonts myself to meet the scribus dependencies. When I 
start scribus, I get the splash screen, and then it segfaults before 
any text is displayed on the splash screen. I've looked at the core 
dump in gdb, and it told me this:

crashes at XftDrawSrcPicture () from /usr/X11R6/lib/libXft.so.2

	Since scribus compiles with no errors, I'm assuming that there are 
missing fonts or something? (Xft does deal with fonts, right?). My 
knowledge of fonts and X11 is very limited, but I'm willing to read 
whatever documentation I need to for scribus to work.

Thank you,
Robert French

By the way, I think Scribus is a great alternative for people who are 
tired of dealing with Quark's crap.
