I remember, X11 core font support has been removed from
gtk+-2.4.x & later. Therefore, xlsfonts does not help you
to identify the font related troubles in gtk+-2.x anymore.
(the removing means the font management, how to lookup font,
how to access, etc etc are completely independent with
traditional X11 applications, like, xlsfonts, gtk+-1.x etc)
I suppose, your gtk+-2.6.x backend is xft, you should check
"fc-cache" command to get a list of the font xft library

I'm unfamiliar with ~/.fonts.config - Who told you as it's
