Fonts are usually located at
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ (if you are running one of typical Linux 
but you can put them in A8ny* folder, and add that folder to 
You just need to re-run #xftcache after each modification of XftConfig
(Linux will do it automatically on startup/reboot, but you don't have to 
reboot after editing XftConfig)

Anyway, easy way to serach for a fonts is to invoke:
#locate .pfb
#locate .ttf
--> than you will see what folders have those fonts.

Alternatively, you can invoke rpm and ask for 'fonts' packages:

address@hidden vad]$ rpm -qa | grep fonts

and than list available fonts:
address@hidden vad]$rpm -ql urw-fonts

Hope this helps!
