Fontconfig error: "conf.d", line 1: no element found


Hi,

when several application (gnome/gtk based) are started from shell I get the following message:
Fontconfig error: "conf.d", line 1: no element found

What happend with this and where is the config-file from fontconfig where in line 1 someting can't be found?
It's only a (warning) message but it seems that the applicantion runs without any problems (perhaps font problems).

This error comes from /etc/fonts/fonts.conf which contains the line:
Code:
<include ignore_missing="yes">conf.d</include>
For some reason in most distros the dir /etc/fonts/conf.d does not exist so fonts.conf is complaining. You can delete or comment that line (using a "#" in front of it) , or set "ignore_missing="no" as described in the man page
