If you've been trying to update your Scribus SVN version(s), you've been having a rough time of it, no doubt. This is because the servers have been changed (too bad it's not April Fool's Day!).
 +
 +
You will need to completely get rid of your existing downloads and start all over:
 +
 +
* <pre>svn co svn://scribus.net/branches/Version135/Scribus yourscribusdirname</pre>
 +
* <pre>svn co svn://scribus.net/trunk/Scribus yourotherscribusdirname</pre>
 +
 +
After that, go back to <tt>svn up</tt> for updates.

 +
 +
<pre> -DWANT_SCRIPTER2=1</pre>
