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

233 <application>Fontconfig</application> also ships many example

237 <filename class="directory">/etc/fonts/conf.d</filename>
238 will enable them. The default setup is generally good enough for
239 most users. See <filename>/etc/fonts/conf.d/README</filename>
