Pdf viewers not showing text after X11-fonts-misc module added to Slax 5.1.8 live CD.

Firstly this is not about Slax installed on my HD it is about the SLAX 5.1.8 live CD. I added the X11-misc-fonts module to the distro and re-burnt the iso image. The live CD boots up fine and loads perfectly. However, after the X11-fonts-misc module was added Kpdf viewer does not read any of the text in a pdf file , only graphics. Prior to adding this module it worked fine.
Also when using Fluxbox I cannot get the "transparency" effects to work on my toolbar and menus ( although I can get transparency in aterm). When X11-fonts-misc is not installed I get transparency and pdf viewers to work properly.
I've used fc-cache to update the font index and also "xset fp rehash." Still no luck. Any clues ???
It seems to me that X11-FONTS-MISC is causing some problems or I haven't used the correct procedures to install and fc-cache the font index. This problem is driving me nuts and I've had no response either on here or the SLAX forums.

Thanks for any pointers,

Finally gave up and added the Acroread module instead which works fine. Xchm also works fine and I can use transparency in Fluxbox.
