Description of problem:
According to the Fedora 18 release notes, $HOME/.fonts.conf is deprecated in favor of $HOME/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf. But fontmatrix still creates $HOME/.fonts.conf whenever it runs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm -r ~/.fonts.conf ~/.Fontmatrix
A file ~/.fonts.conf is created.
~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf should probably be created instead.
One could argue this is an upstreams thing. But since the upstreams project seems a bit hard to find, cf. bug 819159, I guess it has to be handled with a little patch instead.
Since Paul Flo Williams pointed out in bug 819159 that fontmatrix lives in github these days, I've created an upstreams issue too. Github does not seem to be listed among the possible "external trackers", but the URL to my report is
