[scribus] workaround for the absent documentation in Fedora

We are still not seeing the 1.4.3 version in Fedora, but when it comes, 
you can be sure that the documentation will be missing.

You can easily add it to your system, and it doesn't require any 
compiling. You do need to download the svn files as shown on the wiki,* 
(which requires subversion):

svn co svn://scribus.net/branches/Version14x/Scribus scribus14x

which will put all of the svn files into this scribus14x directory.

Your documentation on your system is supposed to be in 

The needed files in your svn folder are in scribus14x/scribus/doc/

In there, you will see cs, de, en, fr, it, and pl folders. Only the de, 
en, fr, and it folders have any significant documentation, so copy 
whichever you need to the system folder (you will need root privileges):

sudo cp -R de en fr it /usr/share/doc/scribus-1.4.3/

after which you should find documentation in the Help browser.


* you could also download the tarball from Sourceforge, but this is more 
complicated, since you need to know how to uncompress and untar.
