My /etc/fonts/font.conf has

<!-- Font directory list -->

	<dir>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts</dir> <dir>/usr/local/share/fonts</dir>

Please help out by logging on to launchpad and click on "Does this bug

or whatever is appropriate to either the begining or ending of the dir
list in /etc/fonts/font.conf ?
