I did not see this anywhere in this thread.
Be sure to add this line to your /etc/X11/XF86Config  file also.

Fontpath   "unix/:7101"

This will add the truetype fonts to the available  list of fonts for X
windows. You might also search the mail list archives at debian.org
regarding the use of ttf files. There is a great deal of info there on
this subject.
