I always download the source and compile. That way I always have
the most current version. Here is my nightly script, run from
cd /usr/local/src/s14x
rm -r *
cd ../
svn co svn://scribus.net/branches/Version14x/Scribus s14x
cd s14x
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local/scribus4_svn 
make install
cd scribus
ls -l scribus
rm /usr/local/bin/scrib4
ln scribus /usr/local/bin/scrib4
Since I keep two versions of scribus current I rename them scrib4
and scrib5 respectively. You don't have to do that. 

Long ago I decided to free myself from the vagaries of
distributions. Once you master the art of compiling from source
you don't have to wait for a particular distro to catch up.
