I posted previously about problems with X11() on my MAC using R 2.8.1 . After installing the securilty update for Tiger this morning, X11() now works from an xterm :-)

However, I receive the following warnings with any plotting command using the default X11 settings.
Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration. Fontconfig warning: adding
<cachedir>/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/fontconfig/cache</cachedir> Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>~/.fontconfig</cachedir>

Everything works fine with the Xlib option:

> X11(type="Xlib")
> plot(1:10) # no problems!
> X11(type="cairo")
> plot(1:10)
Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration. Fontconfig warning: adding
<cachedir>/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/fontconfig/cache</cachedir> Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>~/.fontconfig</cachedir>

subsequent commands with X11/cairo plot with no errors.

If I quit R, and start a new session I continue to receive the Fontconfig warning.

Any suggestions on what is wrong with my font configuration? (mainly annoying :-)

Thanks!
