gnome-font-viewer: Shows what a font looks like.

To install new fonts (on Fedora Core 5), put them in a new directory in /usr/share/fonts/. Inside that directory, run ttmkfdir and then mkfontdir. Edit /etc/X11/fs/config and change the font path to include your directory. Finally, restart the font server.
