Fontconfig error after installing Droid fonts package

Post by Honeyman » Tue Sep 24, 2013 22:10

Hi all,

it seems to me there are some issues with the package of Google's droid fonts (media-fonts/droid-113-r2)

After I had installed this packages, each time I installed a new font, I received this error message:

Code: Select all

 * Generating font.scale ...                                                                                       [ ok ]
 * Generating fonts.dir ...                                                                                        [ ok ]

Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/59-google-droid-sans.conf", line 96: Having multiple values in <test> isn't supported and may not work as expected
After I remove the droid fonts, the installation process for new fonts does not bring up any more error messages, but during de-installation there was another warning, see below (I manually put translations into English after ##):

Has anyone else made the same experiences with the package media-fonts/droid-113-r2? I have never filed a bug report in my life, so I thought I would post this here in the forum first, before annoying developers about a minor issue.
