Ok, this Bug is affecting fedora core 5. 
I can't install/delete fonts from kde control center until i add the 
<dir>/usr/local/share/fonts</dir> line to /etc/fonts/fonts.conf.
It's annoying, this was reproduced on more than one system.
It's affecting Fedora core5 with kde 3.5.1 and 3.5.2
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 19:22:34 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
