Looking at /usr/local/scribus_svn/bin/ there is an executable with the
name "scribus." Launching it starts Scribus 1.3.9. Its properties says
it is owned by root. Launching it from the command line as root gives

[root at Devil8 bin]# scribus
No protocol specified
scribus: cannot connect to X server :0.0

The properties for the executable only say that it is owned by root;
there is no further information about the file.
