Sure :-)
But unfortunately, last time i checked, there is none for
debian-ish + amd64 :-(

So I installed from the source :-)
Thats not a big problem ... as long as you learn how to do it and don't 
have a fear of comand lines :-)
Just if I had wanted to unistall, then it seems like I would have a problem.

Would be very nice if some remove script also was present for normal 
tar-packages, but, well, I know ... lots of other important things to do 

Wont just apply to those who want to quit using Scribus, just imaging 
wanting to use it just on another machine. (But I know harddisks are big 
these days, one could argument. And for DTP you need that anyway.)

But, well: flexibility is a good thing :-)

It seems like there are lots of other ways of installing to, according 
to the scribus web sites too but, well, I have not digged into it. And 
it seems to be a hazzle to change my method now :-/

Summary: at present: no problems (for me, that is), but I see some 
pitfalls that could have been removed.
