slackware 10, fresh install, screwy fonts in X!


Hello,

After a fresh install of slackware 10 and configuring X server i loaded into KDE and changed the font size a couple of times. I logged in and out of KDE and restarted a couple of times. I went to log into KDE again and my fonts were all small and thin looking. I figured a restart may fix the issue and when i closed KDE there was this code:
Code:
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/local/share/fonts, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/share/fonts, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/share/fonts/default, removing from list!
xset:  bad font path element (#64), possible causes are:
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
    Directory missing fonts.dir
    Incorrect font server address or syntax

I checked to make sure that the directories did exist and they did have write and read permissions on them. I tried logging into Gnome and the fonts looked just as bad. I tried logging in as root in both environments and the font looked the same. I tried google'ing some of the errors but all i found was people having issue with X not starting up at all showing those errors. I figured a quick re-install of slack would fix it and it did. Then after changing the fonts in KDE the same issues came up again. Any help would be greatly appreciated !! Also any good website references to how X server works would be wonderful seeing as i have no idea what would be causing this problem! Thanks for your time!

instead of changing the font sizes........you might have deleted them altogether by accident............
which is why you are getting the errors...............

In the KDE control center under appearance & themes then fonts there is no way to delete fonts, and it is still showing the default font of helvetica
