This thread reminds me of an unpleasant bug in the KDE Control Center
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=251286) which hosed the
X-server for anyone attempting to install fonts "system wide" by
selecting Administrator Mode.

I only mention this because, despite the fact that it continues to
persist in F8, with it being originally filed as arising in F7 the bug's
set to be "officially" closed on June 13.
