I not understand wats problem is with ubuntu. I using Ubuntu 9.04 both Scribus 1.3.5 and 1.3.3.x is inslaled without any problem. The PC is intel core-duo with  2G-RAM, Nvidia with 128 Mg -RAM;  run:  compiz, cairo-dock ( I preffer this because have a feathure to open aplication GIMP -esspecialy  with file what I drug'n'drop over app icon).  Heavily using GIMP, Inkscape and  XaraLX allmost everyday & sometime rawterapee for adjust/make/compose graphics and photos to put into my layouts.

I am using 64 bit Fedora 10 with 2GB RAM without problems. I have to compile my own binaries of Scribus, because I use both 1.3.3.x and 1.3.5 and the distribution rpms limit your choices.
Some people reported here 64 bit systems are faster to run Scribus (can't remember the platform though).
I use two 1280x1024 screen side by side for a big virtual desktop. I like it a lot, I would never go back to have a single screen for Scribus. As far as I know, it's not so much the distribution, it's more the graphic card that you want to care about when planning your workstation. I have an nVidia card, I had problems initially, that I could only solve by using some closed source driver from the nvidia website. But it works well. The distributions pretty much use the same free video drivers, so there is not much difference. But if you end up by having to use a closed source driver, you might find it easier to select a distribution that easily lets you use closed source software.
