Actually I have tried to rebuild scribes on my current installation of 
Linux and it doesn't work anymore ... amount of Gnome2 stuff I would 
have to rebuild is so long I won't do it.

I am going to ask upstream to remove the link from his site, because it 
is broken and I cannot fix it (python 2.6 v. 2.7 combined with gnome 2 
v. gnome 3). Pick up this package, if you want to have it.
