Hmm, weird... On my several OpenSuse 10.x KDE-menus, Scribus 
has always been listed under /Office/Word Processors by 
default. Having used a lot of bad language while moving the 
entry to "Graphics" (or rather "Graphical Work" in my 
language) & done some googling around for the reasons for 
this definition, I'm curious to know a who/where/why it 
lands under WP in my distro & somwhere else in say *buntu ?

Has anyone a clue ?
