I create file in /etc/profile.d/xdg with line:

export XDG_CONFIG_HOME=$HOME/.config

Not working.

In my system is function:


This line no problem, is detected for variables in the Linux.

In the file /etc/fonts/fonts.conf exists lines in:

        <dir prefix="xdg">fonts</dir>
        <cachedir prefix="xdg">fontconfig</cachedir>

This cachedir is parameter XDG_CACHEDIR=$HOME/.cache

Aph... I configure this information, to see what happens.

Is rare, because it this I it worked in the previous version.
