Glad to hear, the issue will be solved. Thank you for your analysis.

You are right, it can be run without qtconfig, but since I cannot change 
  Scribus GUI font face on Ubuntu/Gnome without using qtconfig, and 
Scribus launches here with default GUI font face that doesn't contain 
non English glyphs (try "scribus --lang pl_PL" or "scribus --lang uk" 
for example), qtconfig seems to be rather a necessity in international 
desktop environments.
