Run "xset q" just to make sure your font path is correct. (Also be
aware of where you've installed inconsolata.) I find that on RedHat
systems, for reasons I don't care to investigate, xfontsel's ability
to display a font is not correlated with the same ability in other X
software, but for some reason xterm is a good indicator.
