On Linux, if you start the program from the command line/console, rather than 
from an icon, it will show you the information on the console. It will depend 
on your system as to where Scribus is installed but you might be able to run 
it like:
scribus -fi or /usr/bin/scribus -fi. 
"which scribus" might help you locate the binary if those ones dont work.
