I'm just curious;

My Scribus installations so far never have shown a font list
extending across the screen, the font listbox has rather
been like this:


The screenshot is from Scribus 1.4.0RC6 on OpenSuse 12.1 and
KDE 4.7.2 but I have the same on LinuxMint 13 Cinnamon/Mate
with Scribus 1.4.1.

I'm wondering if there's a (QT)widget set missing in the
CentOS deployment, and whether that happens also in other
Fedora/RedHat distros ?

Best regards,
