I am not sure that url is of help. You need to ensure that the "requirements" that are referenced are available, then

You need to;

unpack the file		bzcat scribus-1.2.tar.bz2|tar xv
cd			cd scribus-1.2
Configure		./configure   (this will build it in /usr)
Make it			make
then install it		make install

you might also want to do  "md5sum scribus-1.2.tar.bz2" and see that it's correct
