Scribus - Daedalus

Hi friends!

I have installed Devuan Daedalus on my new computer and I have observed that the Scribus package for Daedalus does not exist, exist an alternative repo without compromising or breaking the system due to dependencies?

Hi,
Scribus from chimaera should work on daedalus too.
It should not hurt to have chimaera in source.list addionally. Someone disagrees? Any package will be superseeded by an existing daedalus package.

You could maybe use git to clone the source repo it comes from, compile it and use dpkg to install as a .deb

The process might be intimidating the first time, but there are some good guides on it, I believe Debian wiki has one.

Just gotta read the README files in the source tarball, the developer should provide clear instructions for source compilation.
