I am trying to specify a larger font for dosemu 1.2.2
than the default font specified in ~/.dosemu of
# $_X_font = ""                 # default 8.5"w x 4.25"h

My specified satisfactory font in ~/.dosemurc is:
$_X_font = "vga12x30"           # The biggest 11" wide x 8.5"high

I'm using Kubuntu Feisty Fawn and invoke dosemu with /usr/bin/xdosemu.

My fonts for dosemu are in ~/.fonts.  They used to work in the previous 
Kubuntu version Dapper Dan.

In the ~/.fonts directory I have run mkfontdir to create a fonts.dir and 

I also ran fc-cache with the following results:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~ $ fc-cache -f -v ~/.fonts
/home/lba/.fonts: caching, 0 fonts, 0 dirs
/var/cache/fontconfig: not cleaning unwritable cache directory
/home/lba/.fontconfig: cleaning cache directory
fc-cache: succeeded

My /etc/dosemu/dosemu.conf is stock and all lines are commented out 
except for the single line of
$_hdimage = "freedos:ro"

Have I missed a vital step?
