I assume you mean this particular message 00357 from 2008:

Does the 'xset fp+' solution shown on that page temporarily solve the problem 
i.e. if you manually add each of the paths containing the fonts you need, not 
necessarily using the path shown with the xset command in the above message?  
We know that the fonts needed for MEDM are not installed in Ubuntu by defalt 
any more, you may have a similar issue.
