Hi Martin,

if openSuSE or third party repositories do not offer scribus packages, 
you may have a look at flatpak:

I didn't test, but you may be able to install scribus with these steps:

sudo -i
zypper install flatpak
flatpak remote-add flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak remote-info flathub net.scribus.Scribus
flatpak install net.scribus.Scribus

And then start scribus with:
flatpak run com.spotify.Client



PS: if you send a new question to this list, please write a new mail to 
scribus at lists.scribus.net. Please do not press "answer" to an existing 
mail, if you want to send a new question.
