> I am also using Kubuntu 10.04. I installed simply doing the
update using Synaptic since that is the version now in the repository. I
have also now installed 1.3.8. The instructions for installing 1.3.8 are
quite straightforward -- you just add the repository entry, the GPG Key
and search for Scribus. It will show the latest version. If you install
it, you will have it as well as on your computer.
> So far, 1.3.8 is nicer, but anything saved with it cannot be opened by
the earlier version. 1.3.8 is somewhat different and it takes a bit of
time to learn the new ways to do things. There are also a few bugs -- at
least I think that is what they are. Furthermore, it does crash
sometimes, so make sure that you save your document frequently so you
don't lose much if it does so (good advice for just about any project on
which you are working).

Please report the bugs on bugs.scribus.net. If they are not there,
they don't get fixed. We are pretty close to 1.4.0...
