KDE font problem
hi all,

i'm using LFS 6.1.1 and i installed kdelibs and kdebase (both 3.5.1), and everything runs smooth. the only problem is there are no readable dialogs, instead of letters i can only see squares. in the X log is an line that it cant find 'init font path elements'


Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from list!

has this something to do with it?

can someone please help me?
