Thanks to the work of Giovanni Mugnai Scribus is also available for users of the Haiku operating system.

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

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

  • 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.
  • Currently, spell checking is not available in the 1.4.2 release. Scribus 1.4.3 for Haiku will include support to Hunspell.
