When you start Scribus, it runs around looking for new fonts. So
deleting them from the rc file is an exercise in futility.

Without an new document opem (I think), go to

Select the font you desire. Typing the story editor will then be in
that font.

However when you click on the "Green tick" (insert into document) the
default character style will be applied to the text in the text frame.

To change this, go to Edit->Preferences->Item_Tools->Text and select
your desired font
