I have tried a variety of fonts, including fonts exported from Windows
XP (dual-boot) . There is Adobe Helvetica, but no 'Type 1 Helvetica'
and that has also been tried but with no good outcome. The only thing
that works is in my last post (text alongside fonts).
I believe it is a system configuration problem, maybe because I have
KDE 4.2.1 with KDE 3.5.10 (plus GNOME & XFCE as well). This font
problem does not occur on KDE 3.5.10. They all run well for the most,
except for the occasional minor problem such as this one.
