Subject: [Scribus] Different Distros - different versions of Scribus?
Good morning ... I'm playing about with Linux distros trying to
decide which one/s will do what I need ...
Out of the myriad of distros, I chose seven to trial.
The first is Ubuntu and I discover to my surprise, that I can only
get 1.2x via Synaptic. I read Aleksandr's comment about the Ubuntu
developers and since I'm more interested in Scribus than Ubuntu, I'm
happy to go on to another distro.
These are the ones I have available right now:

Simply Mepis 6
Zen 4.2 - have only the live CD - how do I run Scribus this way? I
can always buy the Instal disk!
Kubuntu 6.10 - same issue I suppose.
Damn Small Linux 3.2
Linux Mint 2.2
somewhere around there's a Fedora Core 5 (I think).
Which one/s if any, will run the latest Scribus?
Thanks for a great list - always something of interest on it :-)
