Thanks Greg

I'm not on Ubuntu but PClinuxOS 64-bit (rpm) but decided to try what you 

Chmod seems OK

But the next instruction gave ...

> [ianwh at localhost Scribus]$ ./scribus-git869382d-glibc2.14-x86-64.appimage
> pathForIcon: Unable to load icon 
> ././/share/scribus/icons/1_5_1/AppIcon.png: File not found
> Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>

> ImportError: No module named site
It did however pop-up a box that asked if I wanted to add this to my 
Menu so I clicked 'OK'.
It DID add to my Menu 'Scrbus - Page Layout (Development)'.
But selecting this does nothing!!

The error message above means nothing to me I'm afraid - so still stuck. 
Maybe I should do what JLuk says and change my OpSys to one that keeps 
me up-to-date!! I have the same problem with another very important 
piece of Software I'm using - Kexi!!

Thanks for the help
