[scribus] Hyphenation problem

I hope someone can help me with this. I have installed the latest (self compiled, AMD64, Kubuntu 6.10), and everything works as 
it should --except one important thing: Scribus can't find my 
hyphenation files!

I have looked in
File -- settings -- Hyphenation (or whatever the English names of this) 
and the automatic hyphenation is on, but in the left list (Language:) 
there is not shown one single alternative for languages, as it should.

I searched the wiki and the mailing archive, and found this advice:

"Kopieren Sie die Datei anschließend im Installationsverzeichnis von 
Scribus in ~/lib/scribus/dicts."

I have done that too, but without success. I have also tried to log in 
as a different user ant to remove the .scribus folder, but still without 
  luck. (The folder .lib did not exist, so I created it along with all 
the subdirectories).

I have looked on my system to find out where the hyphenation files are, 
and this gave me:
# slocate hyph_en.dic

It seems to me that all the needed folders are filled with the right 
files, so why does'nt it work?

I have also installed inorwegian myspell-nn myspell-nb aspell-no, and 
these are recognized in other programs.

Any hints would be appreciated :-)

Best regards
