log into the remote machine with:

ssh -X <remote-machine-name>

Then just start scribus, it should be displayed on your local

An other possiblity is to use nxclient and nxserver from

This works really good even over a slow (40kBits/sec) connection.

nxclient is free (as beer) for windows, linux, mac ... , the server
costs 50...500 EUR, but there is a free implementation available,

This is a really good was to use scribus on a windows machine.
