Yes, I can open Story Editor.
However, I can't even there to insert 'ő' and 'ű' characters.
The style is Main Header in the Story Editor.
I tried to change style there but that not solves this problem.

These two characters are problematic since I'm using GNU/Linux systems
( since about 14 Years ).

I'm using
Scribus Version 1.4.4
25 May 2014
Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.12.16-64bit
Using Ghostscript version 9.14

on Arch linux operating system.

I'm also using Window Maker as a window manager ( no GNOME, no KDE, no
XFCE, etc. ).
