Well, I'm not sure if this is the same type of problem...
I just got truetype fonts installed (I'm running linux [redhat 7/8]).
I'm building kde-3.1.4. (I like to build things myself ;-))
I'm using xfstt 1.6.
But when I enable truetype fonts, none of the kde-3.1.4 applications run -- they
all start up, but quickly crashes, the crash dialog doesn't stay up...
When I disable the truetype fonts, no problem...
I was going to ask the KDE folks about this...
