I'm having problems with fontconfig configuration files. I first had
fontconfig installed in /usr/local but then I decided to reinstall it in
/usr. Since then I had some serious font problems in X, and after some
trying I couldn't even get into X (kde). Now I reinstalled X completely
and can get into it via a workaround ( startx /opt/kde/bin/startkde --:0 )
The errors I'm getting is after loading X:
01 stderr is not a tty - where are you?
02 xset: bad font path element (#72), possible causes are:
03 Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
04 Directory missing fonts.dir
05 Incorrect font server address or syntax
06 xset: bad font path element (#72), possible causes are:
07 Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
08 Directory missing fonts.dir
09 Incorrect font server address or syntax
10 startkde: Starting up...
11 Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
12 Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
13 kbuildsycoca running...
14 Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
I don't know what line one means, but I don't think that's the problem.
My main problem is the error "Fontconfig error: Cannot load default
config file" I guess.
I have the following config files:
I also added a symlink to the global file from
but that doesn't seem to help.
Where is fontconfig looking for the configuration? How can I resolve the
I found the same error on this list, but am not able to open the reply
Thanks for any help.
