I have run Scribus from an installation on a USB stick without problems,
so it is possible. This was just a "normal" install of a Windows
version, so you don't really need some "special" Portable Scribus to do
You just have to put your mind into the "mind" of Scribus. If you're
trying to run it on a system without fonts, what good is that? So you
say, "But I have fonts!", in which case the issue comes down to Scribus
knowing where to look. I forget the precise sequence, but Scribus will
look in a standard series of locations for fonts, which in Linux is
going to include a /home/mylogin/.fonts location. I think Windows has
some sort of pseudo-fonts directory. So what you need to do is to
trick/help Scribus into finding where your fonts are on whatever system
you're trying to run it on.
Some specifics about your system(s) would perhaps be useful to us trying
