[Resolved] Fontconfig error: Cannot load config file "infinality/conf.d"

Postby rf28723 » 19. May 2019, 12:21

Hi there,

Running Virtualbox Version 6.0.8 r130520 (Qt5.6.2) on a Windows 10 Pro 10.0.17134 host.
When installing VirtualBox Guest Additions 6.0.8 on my OEL 4.14.35-1818.3.3.el7uek.x86_64 guest , I get "Fontconfig error: Cannot load config file "infinality/conf.:
[root@rfennet-linux VBox_GAs_6.0.8]# ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

Anyone seen this ?
Is the PS1 message related ?
Is this a problem ?

After a reboot, it seems 6.0.8 is running:
[root@rfennet-linux ~]# /usr/sbin/VBoxService --version
6.0.8r130520
[root@rfennet-linux ~]#

Is your guest a CLI only, or does it have a window manager, like X11 running?

Fontconfig error: Cannot load config file "infinality/conf.d"
is a generic Linux problem with a config file from the infinality font renderer.

@all, this problem was not present during the install of VirtualBox Guest Additions 6.0.6 , this only happens during the installation process of VirtualBox Guest Additions 6.0.8 ....

Hi again,

No idea when and where the following packages made their way into my guest:

fontconfig-infinality-1-20120615_1.noarch
freetype-infinality-2.4.12-2.20130514_01.el7.nux.1.x86_64

After removing those, all still works fine,and VBox GA installations completes successfully without any error.

Thanks for helping.
Kind regards,
Rene
