On Fedora, I often need to use Alternative Print Command, so you might 
try that.

example: 'lpr -Pmyprinter'

without the quotes, with or without a space between -P and the printer name.

This is fairly longstanding problem with Fedora, and seems to affect 
only Scribus, suggesting that somehow Scribus isn't interacting with 
CUPS the way other programs are.
