No Truetype Fonts with XFree 4.3.0.1


Hi,

I haven't been able to get truetype fonts to work at all in linux with XFree.
All of the font directories are in my XF86Config file, I've loaded the freetype module, added the directories to my Font server config file and Ive done all of the ttmkfontdir, encodings, etc. commands for the directories with my truetype fonts.

However, even with all of this, I just get the regular fonts, the non-truetype ones.
I checked my XFree log file and there aren't any font errors in there. Any ideas? Has anyone had a similar problem?
