Bug Description

Binary package hint: scribus

I have recently upgraded to gutsy gibbon from feisty fawn and all appears to be woking fine including Mozilla Firefox.
More recently I have installed both scribus 1.3.4 and scribus 1.3.3.9. In both issues of scribus when I click on a URL, in
the scribus manual, firefox does not respond. In scribus 1.3.3.9 the manual page goes blank and that's all. In scribus 1.3.4,
I get the message " Scribus was not able to start the external web browser application/home/bill/desktop. Please check the setting in preferences".
As scribus 1.3.3.9 is the stable version I would appreciate a solution for it. I would also like a solution for the more recent scribus 1.3.4, so if someone can recommend an appropriate preference setting or other solution I would be very grateful.

Hmm, it returns QTextBrowser: no mimesource for http://scribus-forum.de/news.php
I'll try to discuss it upstream this week.

I will look into backporting the fixes from 1.3.4 if it's possible at all without rewriting the whole thing...

Attached a debdiff which should fix the issue - although it's adding a dependency for xdg-utils and another untranslated string :/
