FC-CACHE(1)                 General Commands Manual                FC-CACHE(1)



NAME
       fc-cache,  fonts.cache  -  create  an index of FreeType font files in a
       directory

SYNOPSIS
       fc-cache [directory-name ...]

DESCRIPTION
       If directory arguments are not given, fc-cache uses each  directory  in
       the  current  font  configuration.   Each directory is scanned for font
       files readable by FreeType.  A cache is created which contains  proper-
       ties  of  each font and the associated filename.  This cache is used to
       speed application startup when using the fontconfig library.

FILES
       fonts.cache    Maps file names to font properties.  Read by  the  font-
                      config  library  at application startup to locate appro-
                      priate fonts.

SEE ALSO
       libfontconfig(3lib)

NOTES
       fc-cache is run automatically at system boot to ensure font caches  are
       up  to  date via the fc-cache service.  The fc-cache service is managed
       by the service management facility, smf(5), under the  service  identi-
       fier:

       svc:/application/font/fc-cache

       Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or
       requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(1M).   The  service's
       status can be queried using the svcs(1) command.
