The XO software stack uses fontconfig, so the fc-list command will give
you the list of all fonts currently installed. (There are a few extra
fonts in the repositories that you can install using yum as well.)

From the terminal, simply create a ~/.fonts folder, then copy your fonts
to this folder.

What font did you have in mind?

BTW, we're looking at forming a ideal set of open fonts for each target
