Well, I used 'GDebi Package Installer' once it was downloaded, to 
install Scribus 1.3.5 into my Ubuntu 9.04 system... this also, 
apparently, as far as I can determine, updated or removed the previous 
version ( & seems so far to be working well.

My initial question now is, what are the possibilities for different 
fonts (i.e., resources to look into)? Other than that, thanks much for 
the beautiful new/fresh looking program! & the Wiki pages are very 
helpful... to get one (re)started in doing work.
