1.- I've already added the follwing lines at the xorg.conf

      FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
      FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
      FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
      FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/"
      FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
      FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"

2.- I installed the following fonts too

mkfontdir /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/
mkfontdir /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/

but I couldn't start up the XWindows

Note: I'm new in SUSE Linux.
