Don't expect tables in Scribus to work as tables in other programs (at
least not until 1.5.0).

A table in Scribus is (at least currently) just a group of text frames.
This means that to apply lines you will need to ungroup the cells and apply
lines separately for each cell.

Yes, this sucks, but that's the way Scribus works. It's generally
recommended to not use the tables in Scribus but to make tables some other

Use a text frame with tab stops and draw lines on top of it, create table
in another program and insert into Scribus as image (preferably vector
image like EPS, SVG or PDF) etc.

I think table support has been rewritten for version 1.5 but I'm not 100%
