I suggest you download the source and inside, you will find a number of
files, three of which are called README, BUILDING, INSTALL
Those three files are recommended reading.
You will find this in the BUILDING file
Qt >= 3.3 (3.3.8+ recommended) and not Qt4.x Scribus 1.3.3.x
will not compile with Qt 4.x
Freetype >= 2.1.3 (2.3.x+ strongly recommended)
libart >= 2.3.10+ (2.3.17+ recommended)
libtiff >= 3.6.0
LittleCMS (liblcms) = 1.12 (1.18+ recommended)
libjpeg (depending on how Qt is packaged)
If you are installing from distro packages, the base package is NOT
ENOUGH. You MUST also install the -dev or -devel package, or Scribus
can not use the library.
Fontconfig >= 2.0
LibXML2 >= 2.6.0
GhostScript >= 8.0 (8.60 or greater preferred)
Python >= 2.3
tkinter for the font sampler script
python-imaging for the font sampler preview
pkgconfig (to assist finding other libraries)

You will download a file called something like scribus-184.108.40.206.tar.gz
You can move it to anywhere you like, but I suggest you leave it where
it is and run the command
# tar -zxvf scribus-220.127.116.11.tar.gz (or whatever it is called)
That will 'untar' it, generate a directory called Scribus and all the
contents of the file will be placed in that directory.
This is where you will find the README, BUILDING, and INSTALL

I recommend that you perhaps get help through a local linux users group
if that is possible, as asking such a question suggests you are
unfamiliar with the basics of Linux.
Anyway, to answer your question, ../Scribus means to go back to a
higher directory and then change directory into the Scribus directory.

This is sort of a non issue. Once you get to this point, you might want
to ask again.
