So I tried to work with the source code, loaded all the requirements 
mentioned in the BUILDING instructions, but still no joy. When running 
"'cmake ." I got this message:
  CMake Error at 
 So I have these questions:
 1. Since I have no need for tiff files can I eliminate this requirement 
from the source package somehow?
 2. If not is there a form of Linux other than Ubuntu that will  install  
this release successfully? I don't wnat to use Ubuntu because
 the display is terrible and the top bar of Scribus keeps disappearing and 
reappearing.  My current computer won't take Windows 7
 (wierd bios.)
 I have tried Slackware, Kubuntu and Xubuntu. I have an oldl Debian DVD and 
a mrre recent.Suse DVD but I don't want to waste another week trying to 
make them work.   I certainly don't want to invest in Wndows 10  or in 
another computer.
 If you made 1.5.3  work please tell me what exact OS and what package you 
used. I will be very grateful. I am very old and only have a little time

You're right, there's no Scribus RPM there. Other things, but no Scribus.
