basically: no. (assuming that a macbook pro has an intel processor...)

as far i know Scribus 1.4RC6 should work on OS X 10.4... and RC6 will
probably be the last version for which the team will provide a .dmg.

it's hard to debug this on mac (and windows) in an easy way and without
having more details about what you did and what you're doing...

the best is probably if you can get some help in your neighborhood or
can get into our IRC (chat) channel:


(when getting there: ask your question, don't wait for somebody saying
hello to you :-)

good luck!
