Fonts on Linux have been a definite weak point, although the situation is improving rapidly. This article might help clarify some of the issues around Linux's font handling.

The current generation of Linux distributions uses Fontconfig for keeping track of the installed fonts on the system. Check for the file /etc/fonts/fonts.conf, the Fontconfig system-wide configuration file. Among other things, this file indicates what directories Fontconfig should search for fonts. By default, most are kept in /usr/share/fonts/, so this is the simplest place to which to copy your new acquisitions.

That should help debug some font issues longterm.
