All of those are MUCH easier to install on Ubuntu than on Windows. Not
that they are hard to install on Windows, but Ubuntu it is like, 2
clicks. (Really, it is like 9 clicks, but at least 5 of the nine are
clicking checkboxes to select the software.  But I digress.)

I mention this last bit just to sorta answer the "Where does Ubuntu
fit in with Scribus" part of the question.

Anyway, that should get you rolling. Someone else pointed you to the
getting started guide.
