10.0 has the files, just older versions. That is why a 10.1 rpm will 
not work. 

I have a nice solution if you do not minding testing a bit :-)

Thanks to the OpenSuse build server, http://build.opensuse.org, I have 
just started to assemble some bits which will be of interest to many 
Scribus users in the future. 

What I am doing with others including some Suse devels is to assemble 
extra graphics packages which are not currently in Suse, but will be 
useful for Scribus users and other Linux distros in the future.

So, in your case, the newest package is here:


There is also a couple of icc profile packages which are no arch, 
meaning they can be installed on most any rpm based distro without 

I also have packaged GSview, my recommended EPS/PS viewer for Linux, 
which is explained a bit in the current Scribus docs. GSview is not 
available for 9.3, as the way Ghostscript was packaged changed for 
the better in 10.0.

Right now, there is Scribus, which should be very stable 
and trouble free. Soon,  I will have bleeding edge 1.3.4cvs, for 
those who want to test the newest bits.

The build server provides Suse 9.3>10.2, including SLED 10

Not long we should have Fedora and Mandriva packages hopefully.

Howto for adding repos to Yast:

http://software.opensuse.org/ has the gpg key you can install to 
verify packages.

Mail me off list if you have any issues with the packages.
