Ok that works fine. I didn't notice the persistent install slider on
the live-usb install window first time.
I set it to 1200Mb or something on a 4Gb stick and it downloaded and
installed scribus ok but was much slower than without the persistent
install set. so probably a bigger usb stick would be better.

so for the original poster.
libraries can be a bit funny about installing stuff on their pc's
so you may be better to download everything and install it when you get home.

you'll need the

an iso of the live distribution.
and then you'll need
python -2.6.9
tix 1:8.4.3-3
sqlite 1:4523-9
tk 1:8.5.6-4
tkinter 2-6-9
python-imaging 1.1.6-14

that's from the dependency list and some of the dots might be in the
wrong place.
I guess you could get rpms of those and tell the install software
thingy where to look ?
