I've somehow solved this myself by:

1. Opening the 'map character' application (gnome menu)
2. Selecting the "Standard Symbols L" font
3. Choosing whatever letter I want and copy it
4. Opening in Gimp the text tool
5. Selecting the "Standard Symbols L" font
6. Pasting the copied letter

This is much more complicated than it used to be. Now, I'm not sure whether this is a 'Gimp 2.0' feature or something related to Fedora Core2 / Xorg.

Does anyone know a simpler solution?

Cheers,

Miguel

I'm using gimp 2.0 under fedora core 2.

I want to introduce some greek letters but cannot find an appropriate
symbol font, what should I do?

Cheers,

Miguel
