Re: Fonts totally gone in konqueror

I think the applications were set to use TrueType fonts, and for some
reason KDE isn't seeing them.  When I reset the fonts in the
applications I noticed some fonts didn't show (in applications with a
preview pane of the text, the preview was blank; in those that had
drop down lists showing font names in the style of the font their were
blank lines on the list).  I think those fonts were the TrueType ones,
since I didn't see any of them.  I saw Roman (Adobe) but not Time New
Roman, for example, and there were no entries under Microsoft-*.

Anybody know what I have to tell KDE3 so it will see the fonts?  KDE2,
running simultaneously under the same XFree, does have access to them,
so I think thinigs are OK at the X level.
