I don't have set X resources in my home directory.  I'm running KDE
using the gtk-qt engine for GTK apps, and in my personal settings for
this engine I have the option "Use my KDE fonts in GTK applications"
set, but I'm afraid I don't know how they are set.  As a test I created
~/.Xresources with a setting for Emacs.font, ran xrdb on it and then
invoked unicode Emacs, but it still just returned the peculiar error
message (Emacs from CVS trunk did use that font, so I know it is valid).
Can you tell me what I should do to make sure a certain font is set for
unicode Emacs from outside of Emacs?
