hi alexandre,

it's sad that you didn't get any answer.

before trying to give you an answer, i'd like to point you to the fact:
- that you shouldn't send html mails to the mailing list
- the next you should post the whole question again (i had to look up in 
the archive what the error was).

> The problem posted in previous e-mails is not resolved.It is my first problem compiling scribus with cmake.The command was: (after creating a build folder within scribus sources):
> /usr/bin/cmake ../scribus -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/home/alex/software/scribus
> Also I installed all developer packages needed,the cmake version is adequate,so I do not understand what is the problem,a Ubuntu specific problem,or the cmake specifications in scribus-

it looks like, your cmake version is too old...
i guess you should use a self compiled version if you want to stick with 
your current version of ubuntu (you can install it in 
/home/alex/software/cmake/ and than run cmake as 

hope that helps
