    With gaim you can change the fons for all gtk-apps at the same time, use gtk-qt controlpanel under kde, or you can use the tools which came with gnome or you can use the app "switch2" which works under all the windowmanagers (I use it along with fluxbox). Have you also checked /usr/local/share/fonts, I think I saw some there...

    Now I found some here to: /usr/share/fonts/ttf/decoratives/

    EDIT: Try to run "find / -name fonts" as root, and look for eventual font-paths

    Maybe you haven't installed the font-packages? What fonts were you looking for? What distro?
