Okay. I know the font question has been discussed already. However, I have
tried to ix the problem, and it aint happening.

I added the MS core fontpack to my /usr/share/AbiSuite/fonts/
Used ckfontpath to add the dir to my XFS config
Ran both ttmkfdir -o fonts.scale and mkfontdir

when I invoke abiword, I still get the same problem.

["Abiword could not load the follwing fonts or fontset....-*- Times New

Sadly, I know there are fonts Times Fonts there....

times.ttf -monotype-Times New Roman-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-ascii-0

times.ttf -monotype-Times New Roman-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-koi8-ru

So I am thinking that maybe I am not connecting to the font server?

I can't actually tell what port its running on...

[root@naomi fonts]# ps ax|grep xfs
728 ? S 1:05 xfs -droppriv -daemon
17764 pts/1 S 0:00 grep xfs

does this mean 728...? I tried adding it..

[root@naomi AbiSuite]# xset fp+ unix/:728
X Error of failed request: 86
  Major opcode of failed request: 51 (X_SetFontPath)
  Serial number of failed request: 9
  Current serial number in output stream: 11

I also set the "type1" module to load at the start of X, since that was the
fix for some people. Still nothing.

So, basically, I think I followed all the directions, and nothing has
worked. Let me know if yall have any suggestions.
