Fonts Disappearing From Kde 4 ???


I'm running kubuntu 8.04 with kde4 on a laptop with 2 GB Ram and 120 GB HDD. I've tried every way possible to install fonts and every time I log out these fonts disappear
I have no idea what is going on and any help from the linux Gurus here is greatly appreciated.

I'm not great on the subject but the way I did it, I had a load of windows fonts, moved them to /usr/share/fonts/windowsfonts

ran as root mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/windowsfonts

added the path /usr/share/fonts/windowsfonts to my xorg.conf font paths

added the fonts for the all users using kde4 font manager

Font trouble

I did what you said but it caused some errors (I guess xserver related) and I couldn't get kde4's gui to start. Can you post your xorg.conf so I can see what you mean b/c I don't know where to put the path to the fonts.

This is the only bit of my xorg.conf that contains any font relevant information, of course your paths to things will probably be different

Code:
Section "Files"

# The location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.

#    RgbPath	"/usr/share/X11/rgb"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (which are concatenated together),
# as well as specifying multiple comma-separated entries in one FontPath
# command (or a combination of both methods)
# 
# 

    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/OTF"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/Type1"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/misc"
    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
#    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/local/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/OTF/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
    FontPath   "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/windows_fonts/"
# The module search path.  The default path is shown here.

    ModulePath "/usr/lib/X11/modules"

EndSection
