I can confirm that in F9 a menu option did appear.
Comment 2 Dan Horák 2008-09-09 03:18:07 EDT
The problem is here - http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/scribus/devel/scribus.spec?r1=1.31&r2=1.32
But the real cause is in upstream because they install only a KDE desktop file and not the global one - see toplevel CMakeLists.txt, line 680

Antonio, what are your desktop environments - GNOME, KDE, ...? Both machines are using Rawhide?
Comment 6 antonio montagnani 2008-10-09 14:52:30 EDT
Both machine are using Rawhide, and both machine Gnome.

I have found also that on same machine where scribus missing, one user has no Gnome Images Manipulation Program (i.e. Gimp) entry (missing even in available entries in System/Preferences/Menu ...while other users have it.
And on same machine I do not have Trasbin applet to be added to bar in applet list.
I do not know whether these issues are connected (see also my messages in Development list)

Comment 7 antonio montagnani 2008-10-09 15:07:42 EDT
forgot to say that on one machine scribus is missing for all users....
Comment 8 Dan Horák 2008-10-13 12:35:42 EDT
So new version is being built for Rawhide - scribus-1.3.5-0.5.12516svn.fc10

note for Andreas:
When the KDE-only desktop will need to be installed for some reason then we must add Requires: kde-filesystem for the ownership of /usr/share/mimelnk/application directory.
Comment 9 Kevin Kofler 2008-10-14 13:38:51 EDT
/usr/share/mimelnk is essentially obsolete. It is used for KDE 3 file associatins, but KDE 4 ignores it for file associations. And it definitely should not be used for menu entries, not in KDE 3 nor in KDE 4.
