Thanks for the information. Yes, I forgot to say that I am using 0.23 from SVN which is at revision 25393. This is on debian 2.6.26-2-686.
I tried copying all my Droid*.ttf into /usr/share/mythtv/themes/MythCenter-wide. I didn't have any luck. I changed the file owner and group to the mythtv executing user.
fc-list | grep -i droid
Droid Sans Fallback:style=Regular
Droid Sans Mono:style=Regular
Droid Serif:style=Bold Italic
bragghost:/usr/share/mythtv/themes/MythCenter-wide# fc-match 'Droid Sans'
DroidSans.ttf: "Droid Sans" "Regular"
I don't have a ~/.fontconfig directory or file. I rebooted after font installation and mythtv recompile and reinstall.
My first font path in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf is /usr/share/fonts. /usr/share/fonts/truetype contains DroidSans.ttf.
I installed ttf-droid with the dpkg -i installer.
I see this rule in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf that might be a culprit. What do you think?
Accept alternate 'sans serif' spelling, replacing it with 'sans-serif'

I have installed ttf-droid, msttcorefonts, ttf-liberation, etc. If I go to gnome:system->preferences->appearance->fonts, I can select Droid Sans or Liberation Sans as a desktop font. Any ideas? Is this something to do with permissions or file locations or possibly even screen resolution?

If it is, in fact, installed properly, it's most likely (broken) font
replacement rules (which are easy to get when you have a lot of fonts
installed). What do you get with:
fc-list | grep -i droid
fc-match 'Droid Sans'
are there any rules that would affect its loading under /etc/fonts/ or
~/.fontconfig/ ? Have you restarted X and any font services since you
installed the fonts?
