For quite some time (maybe back as far as Fedora 7), Fedora will not 
print directly from Scribus, even though is broken in no other way.

What I have had to do is to check for and enter an Alternative Printer 
Command, e.g.

lpr -P myprinter

Hope that works for you. You can always print to file, export to PDF, 
etc, of course.
