Fontconfig error message

April 02, 2013 — BarryK
In the Raring Puppy builds, we are getting a fontconfig error message when start any application.

The problem is in file /etc/fonts/fonts.conf, in template 'xorg_base' in Woof.

If you want to test those latest woof improvements: xft dpi 96, gtk3 theme partial support, PPM gui apps dropdown selection, and help finding possible bugs in them, here is link to the announcement:

"/etc/fonts/local.conf has two parts disabled aka commented (upnorth) . Precise Puppies don't look nice if it comes to firefox . Have un-commented them and Firefox renders properly now. Look is cleaner . Found that 01micko has re-anabled them, too in Slacko-5.5 .
