fc-cache shows error installing artwiz font

I installed the artwiz font but it gives me the following error.

fc-cache: "/usr/share/fonts": skipping, no such directory
fc-cache: "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF": caching, 22 fonts, 0 dirs
fc-cache: "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1": caching, 29 fonts, 0 dirs
fc-cache: "/root/.fonts": skipping, no such directory
fc-cache: "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/artwiz-aleczapka-en-1.3/:unsacled": skipping, no such directory
fc-cache: succeeded
How did ":unsacled" get in there?

I'm using Slackware 10.2

Just edit xorg.conf and correct the spelling. (:unscaled)
That's likely where the error is - in the font path section.

Can't tell you how it got there. Gremlins?

The problem isn't in the xorg.conf. It doesn't have that affix in there. Could it be another conf file?

Take a look at /etc/fonts/fonts.conf or /etc/fonts/local.conf
Here's my /etc/fonts/local.conf file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">


By the way, does /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/artwiz-aleczapka-en-1.3/ exists?

Thumbs up

Thanks for the help guys it was in local.conf

Another question though, how do I get the :unscaled in there? It counts it as part of the directory? Should I put it in local.conf after the <dir> or should I put it into xorg.conf?
