As of 1.5.3, Scribus is supposed to be able to import KRA files, so only your 1.5.4 will possibly work. I can't find any bug reports on this.

You don't say how you are trying to import one of these files. Since Krita is a raster graphics editor (and not vector graphics), I would presume that you import its files into an image frame.

If this fails, report the bug, but a workaround should be feasible if you have Krita, by saving in some other format, like TIFF or JPEG or PDF (among others), which Krita is supposed to be able to do, and which Scribus can handle.
