[scribus] Using the Appimage file version of scribus

Hi All

I have been watching this subject with interest as I'm also desperately 
wanting to try the latest Scribus but my OpSys eill not update until it 
is "stable"!!

I can not get the AppImage to work on my OpSys, (PClinuxOS 64-bit), as 
mentioned before.

I followed Martin and Ale's method - the AppImage, 
(scribus-git51e1f0d-glibc2.14-x86-64.appimage), is executable, I used 
chmod for this and the 'Properties' Tab confirms this. I do not find a 
'Run' option when I Right-Click the file name only a 'Run as Root'. 
Selecting this does nothing at all. Double-Clicking the file itself 
brings up a Box asking if I want to add this to the Main Menu, which I 
accept, but nothing else happens!!

This is most frustrating as I really need to move up to the latest 
version for the production of my monthly Journal.

Any additional suggestions will be appreciated!! Thanks!!
