> First of all, you can ignore the message about not having Ghostscript and use Scribus without any trouble. The only thing is that you won't be able to create PDF files of your documents. Since that's often important, it's worth getting Ghostscript, but again, you can get to work in the meantime.

This isn't true, BTW. Ghostscript has nothing to do with creating PDFs 
or even exporting as EPS.
