Scribus is a KDE app. And when you said "I did try installing some KDE
applications, like Knode and Kaddress, and come to think of it, they
too wouldn't pick up the system window colour" it convinced me that
it's in the KDE settings. I recently had the same problem with KDE
apps, except in my case it was huge fonts for application menus.
In current versions of KDE the window and font settings are
in /usr/bin/systemsettings. If Scribus did not install it as a
dependency it's because it's not technically required for Scribus to
operate. So go to a terminal and type "systemsettings." If you get "no
such command" error message, then install kcontrol-workspace first.
