Well then thats a bug on their side - it s stoooooopid to *force* users to
have to use *different* directories for fonts just because their different
types. Anyway, your average user is just going to install TrueType and Type1
fonts - and I would imagine (and *hope*) that these distros use mkfontscale to
create fonts.scale, and then mkfontdir to create fonts.dir. Doing this would
mean that Type1, TrueType, and bitmap fonts can all exist in 1 folder.
