My fix for this, for the archives was to do the following: - apt-get remove xfonts-base - dpkg --purge xfonts-base - apt-get install xfonts-base - Ran mkfontdir in every font dir - Reordered my font listing in XF86Config-4 to have misc first. It may not have been necessary to do all of these but it was after them that fonts sprung to life again. I also do nnot recall if I got these steps from the list or the 'net. My apologies if they've already been posted.
