I have installed ttf-droid, msttcorefonts, ttf-liberation, etc. If I go to gnome:system->preferences->appearance->fonts, I can select Droid Sans or Liberation Sans as a desktop font. Any ideas? Is this something to do with permissions or file locations or possibly even screen resolution?

If it is, in fact, installed properly, it's most likely (broken) font
replacement rules (which are easy to get when you have a lot of fonts
installed). What do you get with:
fc-list | grep -i droid
fc-match 'Droid Sans'
are there any rules that would affect its loading under /etc/fonts/ or
~/.fontconfig/ ? Have you restarted X and any font services since you
installed the fonts?
