Unfortunately, the problem is deeper than that: Scribus is not
currently able to handle Indic languages (ones requiring complex
text layout) properly.

Various people are working on fixing this, but a coordinated
effort will probably start only after the release of 1.3.5,
and we are probably looking at least at Nov. for even a first
release. Once things are under way, you can help by providing
bug reports for Telugu and other Indian languages, even if you
are unable to contribute coding work.
