Ubuntu usually follows the Debian archive for such packages like scribus. I
expect that scribus-ng will be made available from the regular Ubuntu
repositories shortly. Then,  you will see it in the synaptic as a binary
package. In the meanwhile please continue building from the source package
from one of our upstream repositories following the short procedure described
on debian.scribus.net.
