Since I spell my name as Gaeilge I use fada - I haven't had any issue in
Scribus. As long as you use a font that has fada (as with any software)
they should work fine.

I use Scribus with Fedora, so I use the Irish keyboard setting and hold
down alt when I type the letter I'd like the fada over to output them
and Scribus handles this fine. I've produced many documents with the
fada using Scribus without issue.

Hope this helps!
