I've never used SUSE, but here is my shot at the problem.

One thing is obvious from the error message: The font specification is
wrong. There is no helvetia font, it must be helvetica and should look
more like something like this (out of my head):

It looks like the font definition was written manually, so the user
probably knows where he has added it.

He says that this happens when he starts GnuCash from KDE, so it would
be best to look for the gtkrc file that KDE calls when starting gtk
applications. I have hardly any experience with KDE or SUSE, but I think
an experienced KDE and SUSE user will know.
