I'm using the GNOME3 PPA. The gnome-font-manager is missing in the new gnome-control-panel. Is this going to be added some day?

You can just add it yourself.

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install font-manager

Is that the "official" gnome font manager? Anyway, that made the trick. Thanks. – Noe Nieto May 8 '11 at 6:02

No. It's not "official", maybe someday. The current version is adequate for my needs and better than the alternatives, but not something that's even close to finished.

It's undergoing another re-write at this point. The goal is cleaner code, interface improvements and desktop integration. So it might be a little while. ;-)

Note: My opinion may be a little biased since I'm the author...
