Which dmg did you use? The one which supports Python 3 requires XCode to be installed for that support to work.

The dmg you used is indeed the one with Python 3 scripting support and is the component which provides that support. You can get Xcode from Apple, it can be obtained from Mac App Store. However if you don't need scripting or don't need specifically Python 3 scripting support, you'd better use the standard dmg (scribus- It supports only Python 2 scripting, but does not require Xcode to be installed for it to work.

Installing XCode solved the problem. I'be been learning Python, so installing Xcode may be useful
