As long as it worked, that's the important thing :-) There are usually
multiple ways to get to the desired result, so I'm glad you found one.

(Probably that extra step with fontmatrix was necessary because Scribus
apparently doesn't look in the user's tex hierarchy for fonts; I guess I've
never noticed that, probably because I've never used one of these fonts
with Scribus, only with TeX.

Maybe that's a possible feature request for Scribus, although I'm sure the
developers have much more fundamental things to be working on.)
