Hello Paraplegic Racehorse,
defoma (short for Debian font management) is indeed a special very debianish
thing. However, in Debian Sarge it makes fonts available to ghostscript,
fontconfig-aware applications and defoma-aware applications at once.
Here proper Debian fontpacks such as Latin Modern get defomanized by default
and are available for use with ghostscript and fontconfig-aware applications.
If you have problems you can defomanize manually for example a truetype font
residing in /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype with
defoma-hints -c --no-question truetype /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/*
above all one line, then
defoma-font register-all /etc/defoma/hints/truetype.hints
defoma-reconfigure and xset fp rehash
The defoma-manpages give you more detailed information. You can additionally
install by means of fontconfig (for example via KDE control center) or
specifically for Scribus using the Scribus fontpath dialog.
