I think there is a misunderstanding here. The current 1.3.x series package
version for Debian/testing AND for Debian/unstable in our repositories is the
same scribus-cvs 1.3.1+cvs20051011-1, which is really 1.3.2cvs in Scribus
terms. Please explain what you mean by "testing" and "unstable". Did you read
my previous message quoted above and/or
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Scribus_on_Debian_GNU/Linux wiki page? If
you don't understand something please tell, so I could improve the

You really shouldn't try to "find" it. If you are running Debian/unstable then
libqt3-mt has already transitioned to ii  libqt3-mt ver. 3.3.5-1 there. If you
are running Debian/testing then your libqt3-mt is still at 3.3.4 -
libqt3c102-mt ver. 3.3.4-3. Read the docs I mentioned and you'll get the
correct debian Scribus package installed without any problems hopefully.
