They pulled another dirty trick on me in upgrading to 9.04.
Found out just now that about half the fonts are gone - poof - deleted. >:( :'( ???

Remembered that I had backed-up all the fonts on a previous system in 2005. Dug out the CD and all of the Linux and Windows fonts are there. Used the font installer in the system settings and installed all of the windows TTF fonts. I'm font happy again.
Unfortunately all of the Linux fonts have cryptic names that include the size, but nothing on the actual font name.
Is there any way to decode the name to discover just which font is which?
I hate to just go through all of the fonts - there are 1153 100 dpi and 1153 75 dpi fonts. I don't want to duplicate what is already installed, but don't care to go through 1153 fonts - yes there are NOT 1153 different fonts, but still a lot in different sizes.
Still I think I'll be happy with the 832 fonts in the Windows TTF directory.
