208 The main configuration file for <application>Fontconfig</application> is
209 <filename>/etc/fonts/fonts.conf</filename>. Generally you do not want
210 to edit this file. It will also read <filename>/etc/fonts/local.conf</filename>
211 and any files in <filename class="directory">/etc/fonts/conf.d</filename>.
212 To put a new font directory in the configuration, create
213 (or update) the <filename>/etc/fonts/local.conf</filename> file with your
214 local information or add a new file in
215 <filename class="directory">/etc/fonts/conf.d</filename>. The default
216 location of fonts in <application>Fontconfig</application> is:
