For the umpteenth time I tried the instructions on the wiki page, and
this time everything went without error all the way to the end. Yay!

However, it did not install launch item in the Xfce applications menu,
and typing 'scribus' from the command line gives:

The program 'scribus' is currently not installed. You can install it by
typing: sudo apt-get install scribus

Of course, apt-get install scribus would install 1.4.2 from the 13.10
repositories. I assume there is an executable somewhere for the Scribus
that I just compiled. Does anyone know where it is?
