I don't have this directory. I have /var/lib/defoma/ but here's what's
in it:

(duckwing@Mallard:defoma)$ ls -F
abiword-common.d/        status-cache
ghostscript.subst-cache  truetype.font-cache
gs.d/                    type1.failed-font-cache
pango.d/                 type1.font-cache
postscript.font-cache    vflib2.d/
psfontmgr.d/             x-postscript.failed-font-cache
scripts/                 x-postscript.font-cache

So how do I get this directory and how does it relate to msttcorefonts
when they are in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/?

Should I have the /var/lib/defoma/...TrueType to the /etc/X11/fs/config
file as well?
