Install the debian fontconfig package - or if you already have it installed
try running fc-cache.
If you still have problems - check what your /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file is
doing with Helvetica - it sounds as though fontconfig is matching the family
"Helvetica" to something else. This could be for a number of reasons - the
most likely being that the Helvetica font is not being picked up from where
ever it is installed (/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts subdir).
