Your note is a little cryptic, but if you look at a fragment of a script 
on the Wiki:

L = scribus.createText(15, 20, 200, 20)
scribus.setText("Dir: " + imagedir, L)
scribus.setTextAlignment(scribus.ALIGN_LEFT, L)
scribus.setFont("Luxi Sans Regular", L)
scribus.setFontSize(10, L)

you see that you need to create a Text frame (or have one first). I 
gather you already have a text frame 'Text2', but then you have your 
syntax wrong in setText -- the content should be first, then the frame name.
