I need a publishing program on my computer.  I type in Scribus in Software  
mgmt K menu, a list of about 5 things pops up but none will let me download.   
"Apply" is not clickable.  Various versions 1.3.5, for example.  Each  
one is different.  I do not know what to put in some of the boxes that go  
with this e mail such as 32 bit or whatever so I left them as they were.

Went to Scribus site and downloaded:  Put it on desktop,  
extracted.  It created a destination folder on desktop.  Double clicked and  
there are a million folders with a million files inside of each.

Read on your Wiki not to try to use the aforementioned version with Ubuntu or  
Kbuntu.  I thought you could uninstall if it even got installed at all.   
Cannot find it in the Uninstall option so I can get rid of it.

My son is a Linux programmer but he is not available to me at this time and  
won't be for awhile to come.  I am a Windows XP Home Edition user but now  
have a partition of Windows XP Pro 64x which means I can't even install my  
old MS Office Small Business in order to get Publisher.  I even tried to  
download MS Office in Linux since Linux actually took my old Adobe PhotoShop  
download disk just fine.  But the SB opens up a whole bunch of folders and I  
do not know what to choose.

I desperately need a good publishing program.  Open Office is kind of a piece  
of junk in my humble opinion.  I also think Linux is for ppl who like to find  
and fix bugs, it's not for me but I have no choice.  Thanks for reading,  
Linda B.
