  10. On my Ubuntu Studio 13.10, I must use this:
    mv $HOME/.fonts.conf $HOME/.config/fontconfig/.fonts.conf

    (I tried:
    mv $HOME/.fonts.conf $HOME/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf, but it still warning :D)

  15. When I type
    mkdir -p $HOME/.config/fontconfig
    mv $HOME/.fonts.conf $HOME/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf
    It says "mv: cannot stat '.fonts.conf': no such file or directory
    How can I fix this?
    I have been having problems since I updated Ubuntu

    1. I think you shouldn't be getting the warning since the file does not exits on your home directory.
