Installing Scribus on Haiku is easy: Download the Scribus ZIP archive and extract it to Haiku's /boot directory. The archive includes all dependencies, a copy of Ghostscript and of LittleCMS.

After extraction an icon/link to Scribus will be present on the Desktop, and you can launch Scribus:

Caveats

  • Since CUPS hasn't been ported to Haiku yet, you can't print directly from Scribus. You can, however, export a PDF and print from BePDF or DocumentViewer.
  • The Scripter doesn't work yet, because Python Tkinter is not (currently) available for Haiku.
