I started a book in 1.3.5, so I must continue. Debian stable ships with
Qt 4.4.3. Scribus 1.3.5 requires Qt 4.5. 

When building Scribus with Qt 4.4, it has a few bugs: For
instance, when resizing images, the settings do not update correctly.

I therefore built and installed Qt 4.5.2 (along with pkg-kde-tools and

The prebuild scribus-ng_1.3.5.dfsg~svn20090603rc2-1_i386.deb works fine
with Qt 4.4.3 and 4.5.2.

The prebuild scribus-ng_1.3.5.dfsg~svn20090704rc3-1_i386.deb works but
has a bug: the stylemanager does not work. Applying a style to some text
does not work.

When building Scribus from source on Debian stable with Qt
4.5.2, it has the same bug as the prebuild 1.3.5.dfsg~svn20090704rc3

What I would like to know if this is a bug in Scribus, or did I make a
mistake somewhere? It could be that another lib needs a newer version
as well.
