Can someone outline how to install Scribus on Ubuntu 16.04

You just have to run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scribus/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install scribus-ng

in the terminal.

To install the last stable version

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scribus/ppa  
sudo apt update  
sudo apt install scribus  

Worked for me on Ubuntu 17.04

To install the last dev version

Add the repository 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scribus/ppa 
sudo apt-get update 

Install Scribus 
sudo apt-get install scribus-trunk -y

    installing the "scribus" package gave you the stable version at that time (1.4.x). the question is about getting the development version 1.5.x – a.l.e Sep 27 '17 at 7:22
  • You're right, my proposal lead to install the last stable version. In the title the version is about the 1.5 but not in the question. "Can someone outline how to install Scribus on Ubuntu 16.04". Therefore, I am not sure at all, that the requester wanted to get the development version. Moreover, on my ubuntu, the ng version didn't install. I hope that my answer could have helped some people to use Scribus. – Jean-Marc Apr 2 '18 at 18:10
