How to install vga fonts for doseum in Kubuntu?

Running Feisty Fawn Kubuntu.  Prior to Feisty, I had dosemu working with 
my favorite font vga12x30.pcf.gz in

My fonts line in ~.dosemurc is:
$_X_font = "vga12x30"    # The biggest 11" wide x 8.5"high

Now it doesn't seem to work.

I have tried:
sudo mkfontdir /usr/local/share/dosemu/Xfonts
sudo fc-cache -f -v
sudo xset fp rehash
xlsfonts |grep 10x30 with no result.

I also tried making a soft link with:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/fonts/Xfonts  /usr/local/share/dosemu/Xfonts
and repeating the commands.

What do I need to do for xdosemu to recognize my fonts?
