Is xfonts-base installed?
Run "aptitude search '~ixfonts-base'"
Note, I'm a Sarge user, so I don't have any experience with XOrg, only
yep its installed
Try "dpkg-reconfigure xfonts-base"
If that doesn't work, run 'mkfontdir /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc. In fact,
you should probably run mkfontdir for all of the font directories that
give you those (WW) warnings in the Xorg.log file.
Some programs use fontconfig. You can rebuild the fontconfig cache files
by issuing "fc-cache -s -v -f" as root.
