Xfce and fonts


I've been trying to get used to Xfce. One thing I can't seem to figure out is how to install/switch fonts. For instance, KDE lets you easily install TrueType fonts with KDE Control Centre. Is there an equivalent tool for Xfce?

For a single user, just dropping truetype fonts in ~/.fonts (create the directory if not present) and running fc-cache -v should make them accessible to Xft2/GTK2 applications (such as all XFCE apps) after they have been restarted.
