A silly question - have you added /usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType to
/etc/X11/fs/config? You should add it to the end of the
comma-separated list of dirs in "catalog". Also, ensure that X is
using xfs - assuming it's on the default port 7100, you should
have FontPath unix:/7100 in you /etx/X11/XF86Config(-4, if you're
running X4). Also, make sure you have Load "freetype" in there
somewhere. If all else fails, there's a site with a script for
installing the Microsoft webfonts at
http://gongolo.usr.dsi.unimi.it/~vigna/webFonts4Linux/ and it's
got an explanation of how TrueType fonts get installed. It might
have something helpful.
