The latter one does not always work, i.e. xcin and xfontsel. However I
cannot figure out why it does not work. The fonts are simple not found,
but xlsfonts displays them. So, until this mess is solved I create
manual entries in the traditional location /usr/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType/
and add the path before the defoma ones. This way all applications can
see the fonts. The only thing is: the fonts size to choose in xfontsel
is only 17, even if there are other entries in fonts.alias. BUt I
suppose this has nothing to do with Debian...
