Scribus is neither a PDF viewer nor a PDF editor. Scribus 1.4.x PDF import capabilities were experimental at best and were broken by changes in GhostScript related to security. Given experimental status of PDF import and at this stage of 1.4.x life, we will not provide any fix related to PDF import for this branch. Our 1.5.x development branch has a new poppler-based PDF importer which works much better.
