It looks like Scribus is not finding the illos. Try putting the jpegs 
in the same folder/directory as the .sla file. Using Linux I make a 
new folder for each task and then keep all the components in that 

BTW how are you putting the graphics into your .sla document? the 
preferred way is to create a graphic frame, then right click on it 
and choose the line that says "Insert image".
