What sort of eeepc
Windows or Linux

I have a 701 with Xandros + Ubuntu-9.04

I think it would be close to impossible to install Scribus on the
Xandros, however there is no such problem with the Ubuntu distro

With a 7"screen, running Scribus has *big* problems. Like most other
applications, dialog boxes, and their buttons, are often impossible to
psyche out, move into view, re-size etc etc.

So, you can put Scribus on the eeepc, but don't expect to do any
productive work.
