Re: Loading/indexing fonts everytime GIMP starts

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]




In the GIMP-2.0\etc\fonts there is already a directory called conf.d
All my attempts to put your <cachedir> line somewhere failed: in 
local.conf, under my user directory.
Any suggestion?
