Summary0012726: There is no installable package for Ubuntu 14.04 - please communicate about the problem, so we can help!
DescriptionOK, please tell us: what exactly is the problem with the Ubuntu 14.04 Scribus packages? Some weird complications with QT libs?

If it is only a lack of time, please provide some information on how to help.

I just want to use newest release on Ubuntu and can not install it with PPA - I am already using Ubuntu, not because of personal favor, but because it is one of the most use Linux Desktop distros and to make it easier for developers to deliver, not needing to package for every distro on the market.

Please DELIVER, thanks!

I'm not sure to understand :
do you propose help, or do you ask for help ?
+ which version do you want to install : latest 1.4 or dev 1.5 ?

Some of our volunteers that help with linux distros are unavailable or not as frequently available to take care of meeting requirements for each specific distro. We are looking for volunteers to help.

hi riscbus,

as far as i know, the (main) reason is lack of time.

what we need is somebody who has (or wants to become) packager for ubuntu or, probably better, for debian (since debian packages can and will be easily integrated into ubuntu!)

are you ready for the ride?
