Im sorry for not getting back to the list sooner. Ive been busy. :-(
Thanks for this long and detailed explanation! It solved my problem! And it
taught me a whole lot about how X handles fonts.

When i ran the above 'fc-cache -v' command, it listed all of the directories
it was scanning for caching. A lot of things were missing i noticed.
Including the directory used by X11 for storing its internal fonts!
I added this line to the /etc/fonts/local.conf file:
and then reran the 'fc-cache -v' command. This time a whole bunch of font
directories were listed.
I restarted Xorg and all of my fonts had returned. I have my beloved Helvetica
back and konqueror renders beautifully again!
Theres only one thing i dont understand though. The /etc/fonts/local.conf file
was unchanged from kde-3.2 to kde-3.3 when i upgraded. kde-3.2 didnt need the
extra line in /etc/fonts/local.conf to pick up all of the fonts before i
upgraded, but now it does. Do you have any idea how that can be?
Again thanks for your help!
