You *really* should use symlinks for that. Don't copy the Scribus
executable to /usr/local/bin ; make a symlink from
/usr/local/bin/scribus to the real location of the Scribus executable.

Some programs try to discover the location from which they were executed
and will fail if you just copy them. More importantly, you're saving
yourself lots of future pain and confusion from plugin version
mismatches etc.
