[Scribus] Font trouble on MDK10 official

As Vlad suggested, I've installed the new rpm files, but scribus is  
still segfaulting at the same point. I've been looking around for  
information on xft, and I think it may be something to do with my font  
configuration, or lack thereof. Could someone post their font  
configuration so that I can correct what's in mine?

Thanks again,
Robert French
