The whole point of this command is to know where your Scribus is being 
installed, so in this case, your executable will be


Another useful yum method is 'yum list ...' which can be used with 
wildcards, like

yum list qt*

This will give you first a list of the qt* packages you have installed 
and then others that may be available.

As far as easily launching one Scribus versus another, I create desktop 
launchers for the different versions.

You can also invent commands and put them in /usr/bin, so for example, 
as root, cd to /usr/bin and type

ln -s /usr/local/scribus_svn/bin/scribus scribus150

Then when you as user type 'scribus150' into a konsole, it will run your 
custom version. What you have done is to create what's called a 
'symbolic link'. It looks a bit scary but it's pretty safe. If it 
doesn't find what it's supposed to link to, nothing bad happens.
