To be able to install scribus on my system i undertook the major task of 
upgrading my ubuntu distro.
i downloaded qt-x11-free-3.3.3.tar and presently i am in the middle of 
configuring the environment following exactly the instructions found in the 
install file. But at the end i stuck. I hope some knowledgeable person can 
help me out.
These are the instructions i follow.

1.  Unpack the archive if you have not done so already:

	cd /usr/local
	gunzip qt-x11-free-3.3.3.tar.gz	# uncompress the archive tar xvf 
qt-x11-free-3.3.3.tar	# unpack it

    This creates the directory /usr/local/qt-x11-free-3.3.3 containing the 
files from the main archive.
    Rename qt-x11-free-3.3.3 to qt (or make a symlink):
	mv qt-x11-free-3.3.3 qt

    The rest of this file assumes that Qt is installed in /usr/local/qt.

2.  Set some environment variables in the file .profile (or .login, 
depending on your shell) in your home directory. Create the file if it is 
not there already.

	QTDIR		   - the directory in which you're building Qt
	PATH		   - to locate the moc program and other Qt tools
	MANPATH 	   - to access the Qt man pages
	LD_LIBRARY_PATH	   - for the shared Qt library

    Note that under IRIX the additional LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH and
    LD_LIBRARY64_PATH variables are used for specifying library
    search paths. Set the variable that matches your configuration, or
    see the rld(5) man page for more information.

    This is done like this:

    In .profile (if your shell is bash, ksh, zsh or sh), add the
    following lines:



    In .login (in case your shell is csh or tcsh), add the following lines:

	setenv QTDIR /usr/local/qt
	setenv PATH $QTDIR/bin:$PATH
	setenv MANPATH $QTDIR/doc/man:$MANPATH

    After you have done this, you will need to login again, or
    re-source the profile before continuing, so that at least $QTDIR
    and $PATH are set. Without these the installation will halt with an 

Till this point i think i did everything ok. But the lines below i cannot 
interpret. Can anyone explain where can i set the AIX and HP-UX as described 

On AIX set LIBPATH and on HP-UX set SHLIB_PATH instead of LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Thanks a lot
