Again: Linux font problem

Hi,

several days ago another user reported of this problem, now I have the
same. But I can not solve this problem, following all the suggestions.

I have upgraded SuSE Linux 7.2 -> 7.3 and Mathematica 4.1.0 -> 4.1.2

xlsfonts | wc -l responds with "9205" and I have corrected the second
line in the file Specific.tr

In /usr/local/mathematica/SystemFiles/Fonts there are two
subdirectories:

first directory: Type1
second directory: X


I get the Startup Warning:
"The front end could not locate a CharacterEncoding file for the
requested encoding (ISO10646-1)"

Pressing "continue" leads to a stderr-message:

Actions not found: delete-next-character

which is repeated six times in this window

pressing "close" opens another stderr-window with the same error-message
(but now: 7 times repeated).


If I use:

xrdb /opt/kde/share/config/kdmrc

the "Actions not found"-error doesn#t appear any longer, but a Startup
Warning occurs and all the characters appear as small boxes, also in
"Untitled-1" etc.


Using

xset fp+ /usr/local/mathematica/SystemFiles/Fonts/{Type1 | X}

as suggested makes no change.


I would be very very happy if someone can give me a hint how to overcome
this problem.


Thank you very much.


Harald



P.S.: The kdmrc-file mentioned above contains the following lines:
