I am trying to run RealVNC 4.1.2 vncserver on Linspire 5.0 (debian-based). The log indicates it aborts because it "could not open default font 'fixed'". I provide all the particulars below. Any suggestions? TIA.
The Xvnc command from the vncserver startup script explicitly specifies the font path:

-fp /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/
Here is the log, apparently complaining it can't initialize font path element, and (therefore?) can't open default 'fixed' font:

vncext: VNC extension running!
vncext: Listening for VNC connections on port 5901
vncext: Listening for HTTP connections on port 5801
vncext: created VNC server for screen 0
Could not init font path element /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/, removing from list!

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
Here is the line in /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias that declares the alias for 'fixed':

fixed -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso8859-1
Here is the line in /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.dir that declares the font referenced by alias 'fixed':

6x13-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso8859-1
Here I am showing that the font file exists:
