8.2. Changed File Locations

In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the following changes have been made to the location of the input method and font configuration files, and directories:
  • The .xinputrc file has been moved from the user's home directory to the ~/.config/imsettings/ directory.
  • The .imsettings.log file has been moved from the user's home directory and can now be found in ~/.cache/imsettings/log.
  • The ~/.fonts.conf file has been deprecated. Users are encouraged to move the file to the ~/.config/fontconfig/ directory.
  • The ~/.fonts.conf.d directory has been deprecated. Users are encouraged to move the directory to the ~/.config/fontconfig/ directory.
  • All disabled fontconfig configuration files in the /etc/fonts/conf.avail/ directory have been moved to the /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/ directory. If you have any local symbolic links pointing to the old location, remember to update them.
