I've seen this a bunch of times before, but usually not _every_ time... it used to happen to me on SuSE 8 every week or so. In the end I just installed Slack 9, but I think it does have to do with file permissions on the preferences files.

I had the same problem for a while with the gnome-font-properties (GTK2) fonts, I'm guessing because I don't use Gnome. I fixed the problem by adding the following line to my .xinitrc:

gnome-font-properties &

The gnome-font-properties window comes up as soon as X started, and I just close it. But the GTK2 fonts work the way I want them to though.

This is a fragment of my /etc/fonts/fonts.conf

the third and forth line of <dir> </dir> statement (paths); I added it. There is where I store my new fonts.

And by the way, if you check my previous posting, I mentioned about fonts.cache-1, I finally reboot my Slackware today, it actually will generate that for you. Slackware is great.

By the way, if you add the paths in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf and in /etc/X11/XF86Config; I think you will not have problem with gnome-fonts-properties. I am not sure about Gtk2.

Actually I have some problem with KDE, it can't rander some of my fonts correctly, but it did in gnome. Any idea?
