I notice tha my *.pfb fonts (from Corel Draw) all of which are in one folder
read ok except Shelley (Allegro, Andante, Volante) and American uncial.
These print but do not show in the font chooser as  themselves but only as
mono spaced lettering; and they do not show in the text box but as
Funny but I could swear that I did have that going in prior versions.

Odder, I tried to copy ALL the Corel Draw *.PFB from the CD. These come out
as ../Fonts/TYPE1/A, ../../../B,  ../../../C etc etc.And I cannot get these
to read at all (they are upper case file names). The folder
./home/bart/adobeepfb is working and I can switch it on and off by using the
"add Font Paths" tab. So I am correct there. But nothing takes hold from
/home/bart/fonts_corel_draw. Ok if I have to change 2880 names easily is
there a trick? sed? awk? a shell script?

Even more interesting the true type fonts I so proudly installed in
/home/bart/truetype do not show at all and they are masked by the equivalent
post script (from Corel Draw, too). I had the nerve to give out advice on
this topic.
I do NOT want to use the kfontistaller mechanism > want to keep these fonts
for Scribus alone which is why I use the tab.
