How many fonts do you have? Other than having a few thousand fonts I
can't think what is wrong. 

A previous version works fine on my Mac Mini G4 1.33 GHZ - 1GB RAM -
10.4.6. I will try installing the latest version. 

Also there is no link to the OS X version under the downloads on the
scribus.net page. I found it by typing in aqua.scribus.net as I remember
the address.

It is complicated to install for a Mac application. There are many steps
to follow and they are all important.
