What is the most common standard serif font on Linuxes?

Liberation fonts family (serif, sans, mono) and Linux Libertine (serif).

Another good one in most Linuxes is DejaVu family. See: Best Unicode Fonts for Programer.

What is the standard Chinese font on Linux?

The WenQuanYi (文泉驛) family is most common. This family does not include brush-style (Kei) typeface though. This is the only Chinese font installed with Ubuntu by default.
