[tex-live] issue with fonts in TeXLive 2011

Hi there,

I have just installed TeXLive 2011. Congratulations and many thanks to
all contributors for the excellent work.

My OS is (still) Fedora 14. The problems I'm experiencing are that I
cannot use system fonts on XeLaTeX.

Since I have been using LuaLaTeX for months and system fonts worked
there, I'm not sure whether system fonts didn't worked with XeLaTeX in

My issue is that fontconfig-2.8.0 seems only to be able to find fonts
available that come with TL2011, but system fonts (under standard
directory /usr/share/fonts/) aren't always found (fc-list finds some
fonts and not other ones). "fc-cache -f" doesn't change anything.

Could anyone be so kind to tell me how to fix this?

Many thanks for your help,
