In Xorg fontconfig, there're (at least) two fontcaches, by default
~/.fontconfig, defined in
Q1. But what's the rationale? Only one, the system wide one suffices, no? In my case, there're 69 files in
~/.fontconfig, and 24 of them have identical copies also in
Q2. Is it possible to get rid of
/etc/fonts/fonts.conf is not for writing your personal configuration.
(Q3. Why does X do all as the user root? It should be user X, right? Caches are made by root!)
Thanks in advance.
