Fluxbox fonts ... grrr

I have installed the artwiz fonts, and Fluxbox won't see them - but Eterm will.

I have tried both adding new themes that use these fonts as well as editing a standard theme so that it will use one of the new fonts. In both cases it defaults to some really large sized serifed font.

The new fonts are listed when I run xlsfonts, and their path listed under chkfontpath -l . Restarted X and xfs etc. Running RedHat 7.2.

I looked through the init under fluxbox, but I don't see anything that specifies a font path.

One more thing - Eterm will use all but a few of the fonts - that is when I run Eterm and specify certain fonts, like anorexia, or snap, the console becomes about two feet wide and the fonts never show up. Works fine for ones like bright, however. All these fonts are listed in a dir as unscaled (the dir name that is..)

I have to say that I love Fluxbox. So much faster to start. Lets me have only the things I want.

Any ideas on either of these situations would be great. Thanks.

Just in case someone comes across this post with a similar problem...

I fixed it by simply removing and reinstalling fluxbox. It happed to be a newer version. but not sure if that made any difference or not.

err... and I guess Eterm needs fixed with fonts...?
