If you are wanting to try, i will walk you trough it, and we can look at
other solutions if you want.

I strongly discourage you of using fr_FR.utf8, since all kind of things
break if you do so, but fr_FR.iso-8859-15 (or whatever that is named)
should work fine, well it does for me. I can even provide french
guidance if you want.

So, first provide information about your system :

  o go to applications -> preferences du bureau -> polices and tell us
  what you have there.

  o send us a copy of the output of env in any shell.

Do you wish to use ttf-freefont ? they provide nice anti-aliased fonts.
