Very strange.  When I compiled it, I created the debian package, then
installed that package with no problems...when I ran it, it was the
first time that tkdesk had ever been run on my system.

Have you done anything unusual with your X installation?  I've got a
stock standard debian X setup, nothing else added, no extra fonts, no
changes to paths or font paths or anything like that.

Even stranger.  my ~/.tkdesk/System file contains:

	set tkdesk(font,directories) -*-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-12-*
	set tkdesk(font,executables) -*-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-12-*
	set tkdesk(font,symlinks) -*-helvetica-medium-o-*-*-12-*

and I haven't changed that file at all.
