I get this message whenever I boot. It has something to do with the fontconfig/cache. Any ideas how to resolve it?

FcInit - initialize fontconfig library who is provided by libfontconfig1-dev_2.3.2-1.1ubuntu12_i386.

FcInit, loads the default configuration file and the fonts referenced therein and sets the default configuration to that result. Returns whether this process succeeded or not. If the default configuration has already been loaded, this routine does nothing and returns FcTrue.

So, do a force install to libfontconfig1-dev_2.3.2-1.1ubuntu12_i386.
