Hmm ... this should not happen. How did you update to X.Org 7? Which
packages did you install from which repository? I recommend to simply
install all packages of

SUSE 10.1:
http://software.opensuse.org/download/xorg7/Java_Sun-Java-1.5_SUSE_Linux_10.1/

Factory:
http://software.opensuse.org/download/xorg7/SUSE_Factory/

sax2/Factory already uses /usr/share/fonts, sax2/10.1 still uses
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts. BTW, reconfiguration with sax2 should not
have been required, since xorg.conf is already patched in %post of
xorg-x11-server package to use the new font path.

I cannot recommend to do so. Did you run SuSEconfig (--module fonts)
after the packages update?

Sounds like a completely messed up font setup.

Well, this answers only my first question. :-(

KDE uses client side font rendering via fontconfig/freetype and
/usr/share/fonts as well as /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts is in
/etc/fonts/fonts.conf since quite some time.  So it doesn't matter,
which font paths are configured in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Stefan
