Hi Martin, please try to remove the scim-qtimm package and see if it
works for you, it should work:)

	sudo apt-get remove scim-qtimm



BTW, Scribus users haven't received any help whatsoever regarding this
bug from Ubuntu makers (apart from some very nice sounding, but long
forgotten promises a couple of months ago), but it's triggered a lot of
useful input from users, so that  we can at least help ourselves.
