When I try to start the tightvnc vncserver, I get:
Code:

hophni ~ # vncserver :1 -geometry 1600x1200
Couldn't start Xvnc; trying default font path.
Please set correct fontPath in the vncserver script.
Couldn't start Xvnc process.

hophni ~ #

This is running on a new system:
Code:

hophni ~ # uname -a
Linux hophni 3.2.1-gentoo-r2 #18 SMP PREEMPT Sat Apr 14 00:33:48 EDT 2012 x86_64 AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
hophni ~ #

Obviously I need to install some fonts, but which ones, and how? :?:

It used to be, back in the "good ol' days", that installing X got you a bunch of fonts in the process, but things have slimmed down quite a bit since then... :?
