I believe
Code:
uname -m
should tell you. Mine says "x86_64", I would assume a 32 bit computer would say "i586" or whatever architecture it has

Hope this helps

Scribus should be in Software centre for whatever Ubuntu calls it -- there ought to be no need to download it unless you specifically need a different version.

IF you open Software Centre you should be able to search for it by name. I'm sorry, I don't have Ubuntu installed anywhere to check how this would be done.
