maybe the list of FontSubstituions is at least a hint.
fonts = Union[(FontSubstitutions /.
Options[$FrontEnd, FontSubstitutions]) /. Rule[_, name_] :> name]
Column[Style["Hello World!", FontFamily -> #, 18] & /@ fonts]
On OSX I can use almost all installed fonts in Mathematica. With X in
Linux this seems a bit different. The fonts are very OS-dependend and I
even don't know whether in the case of Linux the underlying GUI (which
is QT afaik) handles the font stuff or whether Mathematica interacts
directly with the X-Server.
We had a discussion here concerning the micro-symbol which is not
directly connected to your problem but maybe of interest:
