Default Using Sharp Fonts On A GNOME Desktop

Falko

I've followed your instructions on using the MS fonts (as well as copying the Tahoma fonts over to Ubuntu). However, everything goes good until I change over to the Tahoma fonts. What happens is instead of seeing better looking text on the screen, I get block symbols all across the screen (instead of letters/words). At first I thought I had a corrupt font file so I re-copied it again from a different Windows machine and went through the process again and the same result. I'm running Ubuntu v6.10 (not the 7.04 beta release). To get around this I changed things over to Sans with a 8 pt font. Not the same but usable. Any ideas on what would cause this issue and/or is there a possible fix/work around.
