On the screen shot, the folders you are seing are the standard X folders -
located in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/. I agree that a single folder makes more
sense, but this is the way the XFree guys layout the folder. The users folder
- represented by the "Personal" icon - is jast a single folder, unless the
user wants to create sub-folders. I don't think  copying all the X11 fonts
into 1 folder is within scope of the font installer.

Craig.
