Firstly.. grab a ruler (as in a real one) and open up settings and hold it up 
to your screen with the preferences on the display tab. Drag the ruler zoom 
value so the marks match those of your real ruler as close as possible. This 
way Scribus will know the correct DPI of your screen. Thats the first step to 
take if your X11 is not setup correctly to get the DPI from the monitor or 
the monitor is not reporting it correctly.
