Error: Font LGR/cmr/bx/n/10=grxn1000 at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not f

Description:
\section
{Experimental}
I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.
[Wizards can fix TFM files using TFtoPL/PLtoTF.]
You might try inserting a different font spec;
e.g., type `I\font<same font id>=<substitute font name>'.


how do i fix this?

EDIT: this problem only occurs when on files where content is pasted from somewhere else.
if i type a similar file by hand directly in lyx with the same setting (title paragraph, subsections, etc) that error does not pop up. i wonder if lyx keeps some fonts in the paste from the original source, even though it displays the text the same as it displays the text i hand type

EDIT: this is some reoccuring problem, see here: http://groups.google.com/group/linux.debian.bugs.dist/browse_frm/thread/0bc6ab5fd311939a?hl=enthis+thread&pli=1

i am party of user as seen here:
Code:
bobby@localhost ~ $ ls /var/cache/fonts/
pk  tfm
bobby@localhost ~ $ ls -al /var/cache/fonts/
total 16
drwxrwxrwt  4 root  root  4096 Feb 10 07:59 .
drwxr-xr-x 11 root  root  4096 Jan 11 04:02 ..
drwxrwxrwt  3 root  root  4096 Feb 10 07:59 pk
drwxrwxrwt  3 bobby bobby 4096 Feb  9 16:01 tfm
bobby@localhost ~ $ groups
wheel floppy audio cdrom video games usb users portage bobby plugdev vmware


but i dont think my root account is (both root and lyx account stumble upon that TFM font issue)
Code:
localhost bobby # groups
root bin daemon sys adm disk wheel floppy dialout tape video


any ideas?

can a mod move this in portage and programming, i think it might get better visibility there. this issue is NOT solved on any board i have seen and it renders Lyx completely unusable on gentoo.

i "fixed" this by replacing every single greek symbol which i had inserted with a math formula greek symbol. it compiled like a champ afterward.
