All Linux users have the option of downloading the source code via
svn, compiling Scribus, and installing it. The Wiki gives adequate
instructions. That frees you from waiting on someone to put together a
deb or rpm package. You will first need to download and install the gcc
compiler. I already to this each night for the 1.5.0 version. Today I
will set it up for 1.4.0 as well.
