That XftConfig looks like mine. Like I said, it is my "belief" that you
have to get the fonts working in plain X FIRST, and then do a bit more
Vera.ttf VeraIt.ttf VeraMoIt.ttf VeraSeBd.ttf fonts.dir
VeraBI.ttf VeraMoBI.ttf VeraMono.ttf fonts.alias fonts.scale
VeraBd.ttf VeraMoBd.ttf VeraSe.ttf fonts.cache-1
--> To get this, cd to ttf-bitstream-vera and run:
#ttmkfdir -o fonts.scale
#cp fonts.scale fonts.dir
-->Make sure you have a fontpath to ttf-bitstream-vera in XF86Config-4
-->Use xfontsel to make sure you see the Vera fonts OK.
