I'm using the fonts I got on the SWORD page (I'm not using the TTF fonts, but the included Type1 fonts).
I'm using the script "type1inst" to recreate the lsts containing the fonts used for X11.
I think it's good idea to put the script on CD. It's a very useful tool.
I think it's on freshmeat. If not mail me and I'll post it.

I think there should be the README of BIbleTime 0.2x.

Ok, I'll to do what I can. But I havn't a fast connection to the internat and the www is expensive in Germany :-(

Perhaps a good idea to put the sources bibletime-0.3 in the BETA directory ? If yes, I'll upload a source package to www.bibletime.de .

	Both are working

I tried the installation again and noticed that the permissions of the KDE menu entry files are _OK_. Sorry for the trouble.
