Well, I installed gedit, and as you said, I can select DejaVu Sans family and 
the Condensed style.

The fc-list you posted, gives me the same results.

I have no idea how fontconfig works, but that makes sense. Invoking fc-list 
with no parameters, in my system gives a list where DejaVu are the only ones 
with two names.

So, what should I do? Should I report a problem (o reassign this bug) to 
KDE/OOo or to fontconfig?

Thanks again.
