don't, so does Scribus. The KDE font installer seems to crash at the 
end, but there is no message about it, so it might even be that it 
merely ends quickly (bar running up to 99 % and window closes without 

The only way to teach Scribus the new fonts are there was to add a path 
to the directory from within Scribus. Hence Scribus benefits from that - 
the other programs don't.

Unfortunately, there must be one font (or several) in my list which is 
not digestable for X - I just couldn't find out which one. Scribus 
accepts the list via its own path setting, and up to now I didn't find 
any mistakes accept that with the font list script included the list 
will build up but not print. Maybe it has to do with it, maybe it hasn't...
