Description of problem:
After upgrading to RedHat 7.2, many of my TrueType fonts are "missing" in
applications using the Qt libraries.  'xlsfonts' still lists all my fonts
as there, but they do not show up as available fonts to choose from in any
of KDE or its apps, nor in programs like LICQ with the Qt plugin.

However, the fonts do show up in apps that use other libraries, such as
Gtk+.  The Gimp, gedit, gnotepad+, Netscape (uses Motif?), etc, show all of
the available fonts as expected.

The TrueType versions of Times New Roman, Courier New, and Arial are much
easier on the eyes than the Adobe Type1 versions, and it's making KDE and
LICQ hard to look at.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start any Qt-based app
2. Use the app's settings to try and change the font
3. TrueType fonts are not available

Actual Results:  Could not choose a TrueType font

Expected Results:  TrueType fonts should be listed

Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-11-05 15:01:30 UTC
This is some weird locale issue (some TTFs work, others simply don't show up because their charset can't be determined). 
This is probably fixed in Qt 2.3.2; not closing the bug yet because I haven't had the time to verify the fix. 

Comment 4 Richard Allen 2001-11-05 15:14:21 UTC
Turning off Font anti-aliasing seemed to help my situation a bit.

Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-02-12 16:21:12 UTC
 This is fixed in qt 3.x
