Thanks for the script, but I can't get it to work yet.

First, I su'd to root at the command line, then created
the /usr/local/s140 directory.

Then I copied your script to Gedit. I have a folder ~/Software into
which I put all funny programs that didn't come from a Fedora repo. I
made a folder in it for Scribus ~/Software/Scribus and saved the script
into it as Scribus_1.4_script. 

From the command line I changed to the ~/Software/Scribus directory and

[root at Devil8 Scribus]# ./Scribus_1.4_script
bash: ./Scribus_1.4_script: Permission denied
[root at Devil8 Scribus]# su jjj
[jjj at Devil8 Scribus]$ ./Scribus_1.4_script
bash: ./Scribus_1.4_script: Permission denied

Root can't run a script from jjj's home folder? JJJ can't either? WTH?

I must remind everyone that the subject of this message starts with
