Adding Fonts

For some reason my method of adding my collection of True Type and Open
Type Fonts doesn't work.

Usually I can just add them to the usr/share/fonts directory someplace
and they work. They show in applications like Gimp but default to just a
simple block letter. In fact over half the fonts "installed" by the
system also don't show.

I've tried installing them with System Settings > Font Manager and
Kfontview but that doesn't work either.

What am I missing?
