KDE Font Installer not working

Hey guys I just recently upgraded to current and all is well, I've squashed every problem I was having with current except that I can't install any fonts through KDE font installer. The fonts get moved to /usr/local/share/fonts like they should but they are not displayed in the kde font installed menu and I have the font path in my xorg.conf file, but the system is not seeing them. Anyone else have this problem?

Well I've done some testing, I tried to install fonts by hand using mkfontdir and mkfontscale with the same results. This is getting frustrating, I can't add any new fonts, anyone else having this problem?

OMG Rookie Mistake!
I forgot to add the font directory in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf
all is well now.
