Font doesn't work in The GIMP

I installed a truetype font called "Ruritania" to my system. I am using that font in some logos to a website.

The font shows up in all applications, and works in all applications, except from The GIMP! It shows up in the fonts list but it doesn't look as it should!

BTW: The font works perfectly in The GIMP in Windows.

Is there any way I can fix this?

Here are two screenshots:

"Ruritania" should look like this:

I got this error in the terminal:

** (gimp:7661): WARNING **: Unable to load unicode charmap from font file /usr/local/share/fonts//truetype/Ruritania.ttf

** (gimp:7661): WARNING **: Unable to open font file /usr/local/share/fonts//truetype/Ruritania.ttf for font Ruritania 16, falling back to /opt/kde3/share/fonts/console8x8.pcf.gz

** (gimp:7661): WARNING **: Error in FT_Set_Char_Size: 23
