Finally figured it out. The reason I couldn't get kcontrol to work is
because with KDE 4.x kcontrol has been replaced by systemsettings.
Typing "systemsettings" at a command line opened the KDE settings GUI.
Then all I had to do was change the settings for the fonts.
Documented here in case another Gnome user of Scribus gets bitten by
the same issue.
