Craig, not that I know of. I've seen the term "Qt" and looked at it on Google but I don't know what it should do. When I look in the Synaptic package manager under Qt there is a list of packages but none of them is marked as installed. Do I need one or more of them for Scribus to work properly? I didn't specifically install any of them when I installed Scribus 1.2.4 but possibly they were automatically installed in that case.
