Thanks, turns out that I had to add /usr/share/fonts/inconsolata to
xorg.conf with LoadPath, now I can find the font, and I have the
following in my .Xresources:
Emacs.font: -misc-inconsolata-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1

But Emacs is still not using it, list-fontsets is still
Fontset: -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-default
Fontset: -*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-standard

Do I have to do something special inside Emacs? Oh and just to be sure
that's the output of "emacs -Q", so there's no color theme that could
change it.
