linux font in KDE KONSOLE (how to make it work)

I was getting the following error from KCONSOLE when I tried to use the Linux font: Font `-misc-console-medium-r-normal--16-160-72-72-c-80-iso10646-1' not found.

You can solve this by executing the following steps:
Start kdesu kcmshell kcmfontinst when you are in kde.
Give the root password.
Click on the "add fonts" icon (a @-sign with a +-sign on it)
Go to the dir "/opt/kde/share/fonts/" and add all fonts (files ending in .pcf.gz) available.

I'm not sure why I was missing the fonts. I did an upgrade from 10.1 to 10.2, not a complete install.

hmm, when you upgraded, the fc-cache command must not have been run so the system fonts get can also "CD" to the fonts dir and issue this.......
 fc-cache -fv ./
and restart X , and the new fonts will show up in the fonts selection menus.........
