changing the default application font


Trying to run a program here, called lignumCAD, but that is less important.
I get an error, saying I need to change the default application font to a Type1 or True Type font using qtconfig from QT version 3. Anyway, qt is installed, and gtk-qt-engine, and every other thing that seems to be needed.

Question is: how do I change the font?

Thanks, and sorry for another newbie question.

Thanks for the reply. well, yes, that is the first thing I tried, it is mentioned in the error message. After I posted here, I thought of using "find".There was no command in the default paths, but I found it in /usr/lib/qt3/bin/qtconfig, and I experimented with it, but it doesn't seem to work with that program, I seem to get the same error message.
Any ideas/suggestions? Other programs to change the default application font? Or other AutoCAD clones?

Maybe you need to change it in the Desktop

Yup, that's the second thing I tried before posting here. Changed all the fonts to both true type and type1 fonts, no change. I used control center (kcontrol) for this, but same error.
Maybe it's just a bug in the program... I've found out that other people have had this problem too.
Thanks for the reply, I'll see what else I can find.
Any further advice/ideas are welcomed as well.
