It depends ;)

I suppose you have it installed as a binary package from your distro or as a 
precompiled Windows installation. Then it *should* be there (if the 
maintainers compiled it with Python (and they do it in most cases)).

Anyway try to run scribus from a console. Does it write something as output? I 
mean something like "problem loading libscripter.so blah blah lalala"

If you are using Scribus compiled from source it would be better to recompile 
it, esp. run ./configure again and check its output for missing Python 
libraries warnings etc.

check it and good luck
