KDE, qt and the whole kaboodle (including kaboodle itself) have been  
updated since the last mepis release. When you ask for scribus, things  
need to be removed to satisfy it's dependancies. You will be able to  
re-install all of KDE (3.4.2) and Koffice (1.3.5) after that, if you use  
the debain sid at least, but it might not all be plain sailing anyway,  
things have changed a lot since the last mepis release. I can't vouch for  
the state of testing. You might be able to get less removals by  
specifieing packages to also install, e.g. 'apt-get install scribus kde'.  
That last release of MEPIS was from before the current release of debian  
stable (that is when sarge was testing and etch was just a twinkle), so  
things have moved on a lot since then.
