I could be very wrong on this and it's only a suggestion but I was
currently working on a completely seperate project to Gnome and got a
similar error message on my Fontset claiming it could not read iso8859-6
After a lot of coffee and sleepless nights I found (to my horror) that
the issue was a single'-' in the XLFD font declaration. As I stated
before it may be unrelated to your problem...then again ?!?!
Check your font declaration for iso8859-1 is declared like
Also check you paths.
Yes I know this is a little like Tech support asking is your computer
plugged in :) but sometimes more than not it isn't.
regards and best wishes.
