True type fonts on RH 9.0 + Firefox

Posts: n/a

I am trying to install true type fonts on my RH 9.0 box and get it to
work with Firefox. However for some reasons I am unable to get it to
work. Here is what I have done.

1. In the dir /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF, copy the fonts I need
(The dir was already present in my installation)

2) Run the following commands

3) Made sure that the config file located at /etc/X11/fs has the entry
of above dir in the catalogue section.

4) Restart the xfs and logged out, logged in.

5) In FF, Edit -> preferences -> General -> Fonts and Color I set the
"Fonts For" to user defined.

After all this, if I try to surf to a site that uses the above installed
fonts, the fonts on the site are still seen as a garbage. I am sure that
the fonts are installed properly coz I can use them in openOffice.
What are the setting I need to change so that I can get the working in FF.
