X starts OK for root but fails for other user

I get an error message about can't find 'fixed' font.
The font is there. fonts.alias is there. It mentions 'fixed'. I
don't see anything wrong with the permissions on the font
files, font directories. The ownership is 'root' (if I recall correctly)
What else should I look for? What else should I check.
As root I can start gnome or the default .xinitrc. But as
my usual user id I can't start either one.
I tried to ask this question on
xorg at freedesktop.org
but that mail bounced. Apparently you have to join first but I
didn't see how to do that.
