fc-cache log (3.87 KB, text/plain)

Description Laurent Bigonville 2018-05-10 10:48:45 UTC

I'm trying to create a cache for fonts located in a chroot

when running fc-cache -y $PATH_TO_CHROOT the fonts are properly detected and caches files are also present in the chroot.

But it seems that fc-cache looks for .uuid files out side of the chroot and no .uuid files are created inside it.

Is that expected?

fc-cache log

fc-cache is called with:

fc-cache -r -s -v -y "${DESTDIR}"
