 I think that it's mkfontdir problem (xbase-clients package). It should create
files fonts.alias in fonts directory and for some uknown to me reason it
 Quick fix is to create /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias file with :

fixed        -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso8859-1
