Installing/Upgrading Scribus on Ubuntu


Add these to /etc/apt/sources.list:

#Scribus - Primary repository
deb feisty main restricted
deb-src feisty main restricted
#Scribus - Backup repository
deb feisty main restricted
deb-src feisty main restricted

then add the gpg-keys for these repositories,
sudo gpg --keyserver --recv-keys EEF818CF
sudo gpg --armor --export EEF818CF | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt-get update
(might have to do this twice)

sudo apt-get upgrade
This should show scribus as the package (or as one of the packages) to be upgraded. Proceed with upgrading.

Install icc-profiles also:
sudo apt-get install icc-profiles
