I use Slackware and XFCE for the gui. I set the overall gui 
background to a medium gray, to make colors appear more 
accurately to the eye. 

Within Scribus I add a separate background layer for the 
background and color it whatever I want. 

I am reasonably certain that you can set the background 
color in Ubuntu. I don't know the details.
