Interesting - there is no "scribus-doc" package at all in Ubuntu 5.10, and
when I start Scribus and go Help->Scribus Manual, all I get is a
blank help window with "Sorry, no manual available! Please see:
http://docs.scribus.net for updated docs and www.scribus.net for
downloads." in it.

Is this because of the license, or something else? (I'm running Ubuntu w/
Gnome, not Kubuntu w/ KDE, for example...)
