makes sense.. no I didn't.. so just added it and it's appearing there
now (in fc-list) and I can use it in X apps (gedit etc etc)

I've changed *all* instancies of "Trebuchet Ms" in ui.xml and
restarted..switched themes to get rid of the themecache (if thats
important) and it's still got it's default font..

am sure I'm just missing something simple.. but not sure what

thanks for any help
