Hi there!!

When I trying to add fonts files to the fonts path using the 'xset fp+  
my-font-directory' command, although I have ran the command mkfontdir  
before that, I get the following error message:

xset:  bad font path element (#7), possible causes are:
     Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
     Directory missing fonts.dir
     Incorrect font server address or syntax

note that the permissions for this directory and all its descendants are  

What's the problem?

Thanks in advance!!
