It surely did... I didn't have permissions for the font dirs...
(obviously :-) I then copied all those files to $HOME/.fonts and ran
$GARNOME/fc-cache -v -f and deleted all aliases everything and it
started complaining about different families...
i. Bitstream Vera -> deleted from fonts.conf and got rid of it.
ii. Nimbus Sans -> deleted from fonts.conf and got rid of it.
iii.Arial -> deleted from fonts.conf and got rid of it.
iv. Free Helvetian -> deleted from fonts.conf and *couldn't* get rid of
Now the last one is what is causing all the problems...
Now any 'wild guesses' on this??? :-D
