If you've just installed KDE 3.5.8 from ports or packages on FreeBSD, don't forget to do this. Why am I putting this here? Because I always forget to do this!

NetBSD users will probably want to access /etc/X11/XF86Config instead.

Package kdebase-3.5.8 registered in /var/db/pkg/kdebase-3.5.8

This port has installed fonts into /usr/local/share/apps/konsole/fonts

You may want to add /usr/local/share/apps/konsole/fonts to your X font path by either:

% xset fp+ /usr/local/share/apps/konsole/fonts% xset fp rehash

or by adding it to your X-server configuration file (usually /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /usr/local/lib/X11/xorg.conf) and restarting the X-server.

You also have to make the new path known to fontconfig by adding a <dir>/usr/local/share/apps/konsole/fonts</dir> line to either /usr/local/etc/fonts/local.conf or ~/.fonts.conf and running fc-cache -f (as root if you edited local.conf) afterwards.

I do have KDE 4.0 mostly running on an experimental system, but for the time being I'm sticking to 3.5.8 on production machines.
