Ok ln -s /usr/local/bin/scribus-ng /usr/local/bin/scribus
will fix this for now, and the next time I will do it the right way, 
then :-)

Well ?scribus? is the default command, I suppose. And debian/ubuntu also 
gives me scribus-ng for 1.3.x as default. This is certainly nothing only 
present on my machine :-) What I suggested was the same different 
commmands for the developer/testing version and the finished version 
also on the selfbuild packages. I thought this already was an 
established thing because this occured on my machine on apt-get install 
scribus-ng. Or do you mean it should stay so, that by installing with 
apt I get a different command than when I install by hand (configuring 
the source)? I find this strange :-)
But it may be that other distributions does it otherwise, and, as said, 
if I am the only one wanting this, then no changes to be done of course.
