For those who have Fink installed, there is now also a "scribus-aqua"
Fink package. It is built from the released 1.3.0 sources, so it
contains those of Andreas' patches that went into this release, which is
probably not exactly the same set of patches as contained in Andreas'
downloadable build. The possible runtime problems may therefore be
different. Also, since it uses Fink-installed libraries, the font
handling might be somewhat different. There are versions for both OSX
10.3 and 10.4.
The advantage of the Fink package is that the package manager takes care
of all the library stuff; you don't have to copy things around yourself.
On the other hand, this is not a precompiled package, you have to
compile it and its dependencies - in particular qt3mac - on your
machine. You need a complete installation of the developer tools for
this. But once you have these and Fink installed and updated with the
"unstable" tree enabled, all you have to do is to issue the command
fink install scribus-aqua
(or choose the equivalent "Install from source" menu point in
The completed Scribus.app will be found (as an alias) in
