As many have suggested to you you should use Scribus 1.4.0 for
production and 1.5.0 for conversion to pdf X/-a:2001.

Command lines are easy. But Scribus does not require them.

With open source programs like Scribus the Linux version is
developed first, and then it is ported to Windows, OS X etc. 
So for you working with Scribus 1.4.0 on your Linux partition
is the surest way to success. On my computer I have both Windows
and Linux partitions. I would never attempt to compile 1.5.0 for
Windows. It would be more work and more likely to fail.
