you add fonts to gimp, by adding fonts to your system;
gimp will use them automagically. check this thread.

good luck.

it is not taking the new fonts that i add to the system

i created a dir under /usr/share/fonts/ named msfonts and added abt 25 fonts into it. i am able to select the fonts under x windows but not under GIMP,
