I just googled for:
   "qt library" "different in Ubuntu" (no hits).
  "qt" "different in Ubuntu" (6 hits, none of which are relevant to Qt).

I wonder what kind of known fact? Is QT somehow a different animal in 
Ubuntu that any other distro? Not at all.

I'm on Ubuntu. Use Scribus. Have no problems.

What I'm hearing from certain Scribus posts, none of whom seem to have 
used Ubuntu, does not comport with the reality I know.

There are various minor config differences between all linux distros. 
That's sometimes an  irritant because it would be nice to just click and 
go no matter which system the developer was using, but that's just part 
of life in Gnu-land.
