I would probably have to install Ubuntu to find out an answer to that. On a
regular Debian system installation of my "scribus" package puts an entry into
the "Applications/Office" menu in Gnome or the "Apps/Graphics" of the "Debian"
menu just fine. I wouldn't have any idea what changes Ubuntu guys have made to
the process.

And by the way, that page
(http://docs.scribus.net/index.php?lang=en&sm=install&page=install-dpkg) has
been superseded by a new version currently in the scribus docs. I am not sure
why Peter Linnell (mrdocs) hasn't put the new version up on the website, yet.
We have a new official Debian repository now with a mirror in my webspace. So,
the correct apt sources now are:

# Main repository
deb         http://debian.tagancha.org/scribus unstable/
deb-src     http://debian.tagancha.org/scribus unstable/

# Mirror repository
deb         http://debian.scribus.net/debian/ unstable/
deb-src     http://debian.scribus.net/debian/ unstable/
