190 <para>
191 The main configuration file for <application>Fontconfig</application> is
192 <filename>/etc/fonts/fonts.conf</filename>. Generally you do not want
193 to edit this file. It will also read <filename>/etc/fonts/local.conf</filename>
194 and any files in <filename class="directory">/etc/fonts/conf.d</filename>.
195 To put a new font directory in the configuration, create
196 (or update) the <filename>/etc/fonts/local.conf</filename> file with your
197 local information or add a new file in
198 <filename class="directory">/etc/fonts/conf.d</filename>. The default
199 location of fonts in <application>Fontconfig</application> is:

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

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