Hi Akira,

XeTeX list when we've got it working.

Yup, its there, with a whle bunch of .conf files in it.

I've just tried that, but it seems it does not work.
I've first reverted the changes I made, described in my previous post.
I then followed your steps, ran fc-cache, mktexlsr and texhash (all of
them twice (1 2 3 1 2 3) to be sure).
The fonts are however not found by XeTeX or fc-list.

Also, shouldn't the local.conf file be in the $TEXMFLOCAL tree? (Tried
it, doesn't work as well.)
