I get this warnings when i start steam under Arch Linux:

Fontconfig error: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf", line 70: non-double matrix element
Fontconfig error: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf", line 70: non-double matrix element
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf", line 78: saw unknown, expected number

fontconfig version: 2.10.95-1

works for me.
That is most likely happens if applications links older fontconfig statically/dynamically.

Please update that app to link to the right one or simply disable that config if you don't need it.

I'm running Slackware 14.1 x86_64 that uses fontconfig-2.10.93 and I'm experiencing a similar issue when running the Steam client, this is the output I'm getting;

This is not an upstream bug?


Here is the contents of the 10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf;

Steam client has own runtime library of fontconfig, which is old and not supporting this feature. even if that error happens, it doesn't affect any functionality on that version. if you mind it, follow up the step at comment#1 as I already mentioned.
Comment 4 XorgBug 2014-05-20 01:01:03 UTC
At the time of my post I wasn't aware that Steam has an issue with this.


thanks

How exactly can I update the app to link to the right one?

No ABI changes in fontconfig. simply building the latest fontconfig and replace the library in Steam should works though.

Thank you, Akira, for your patience. I am still not understanding, I am a newbie. : )
