Scribus 1.2.x and lower get it from X11, plus your additional font dir setup 
within Scribus. 1.3.x also uses fontconfig. If your X11 doesnt have those 
dirs and your using 1.2.x, then add the directories in under Fonts in the 
Setup menu. Scribus will also discard fonts it finds errors in. With 1.3.x, 
you can use the -fi command line option to get font information printed to 
the console on startup.
