Fontconfig problem with Mathematica 8
Hi all,
So I downloaded a trial version of Mathematica 8, and cannot get it to work on Slackware64 14.00. I am sure its font related as GNUPlot also moans about font issues.
When trying to start Mathematica from the terminal:
Code:
mktemp: cannot create temp file /tmp/fontsXXXXX: Invalid argument
/usr/local/bin/mathematica: line 218: ${TMP_FONTCONFIG_FILE}: ambiguous redirect
Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration.
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>/var/cache/fontconfig</cachedir>
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>~/.fontconfig</cachedir>
Any insight would be great.
