Fontconfig error

Postby dustball » Tue Oct 03, 2017 1:58 pm

Hello there,

on an up to date ArchLinux, xnviewmp throws fontconfig errors:

Code: Select all

Fontconfig error: "/etc/fonts/fonts.conf", line 42600367: syntax error
Fontconfig error: Cannot load config file from /etc/fonts/fonts.conf
Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration.
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>/var/cache/fontconfig</cachedir>
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir prefix="xdg">fontconfig</cachedir>


For one, the line is impossible (my fonts.conf is only 89 lines long), secondly an strace doesn't seem to be of much more help either:

Code: Select all

access("/etc/fonts/fonts.conf", R_OK)   = 0 
stat("/etc/fonts/fonts.conf", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=2339, ...}) = 0
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/etc/fonts/fonts.conf", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 7
read(7, "<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>\n<!DOCTYPE "..., 8192) = 2339
read(7, "", 8192)                       = 0
close(7)                                = 0
getrandom("\x0d\x9c\xb7\xf9\x69\x54\x6e\xbe", 8, GRND_NONBLOCK) = 8
write(2, "Fontconfig error: \"/etc/fonts/fo"..., 58Fontconfig error: "/etc/fonts/fonts.conf", line 49611807: ) = 58
write(2, "syntax error", 12syntax error)            = 12
write(2, "\n", 1
)                       = 1
write(2, "Fontconfig error: ", 18Fontconfig error: )      = 18
write(2, "Cannot load config file from /et"..., 50Cannot load config file from /etc/fonts/fonts.conf) = 50
write(2, "\n", 1
)                       = 1
write(2, "Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir"..., 71Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration.
) = 71
write(2, "Fontconfig warning: adding <cach"..., 70Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>/var/cache/fontconfig</cachedir>
) = 70
write(2, "Fontconfig warning: adding <cach"..., 72Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir prefix="xdg">fontconfig</cachedir>
) = 72


The fontconfig version is 2.12.6. It does work with version 2.12.5 though.

Edit: Somehow I managed to open this bug in the wrong category. It's XnViewMP, not Classic.

Had you used the search function, you would have seen topics on the subject already opened.

Anyway, this should be fixed in the next version 0.88 soon.
