Public bug reported:

(This is a Dapper installation.)

The X 'fixed' font is a very popular font for use in terminal windows. I
found it totally bizarre that it didn't seem to be possible to use it in
gnome-terminal.

To reproduce:

Go to Edit->Profiles... in the menu. In the resulting dialog box, select
'Default', and press the Edit button. Select the 'General' tab, and
untick 'Use the system terminal font' if it's ticked. Click on the font
name to bring up the font selection dialog box.

Expected result: "fixed" appears somewhere in the list of available
fonts. Actual result: it isn't there.

** Affects: gnome-terminal (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Untriaged
         Status: Unconfirmed
