invalid cache files in ~/.cache/fontconfig

I created a folder in ~/.local/share/fonts for a font. The folder has many .ttf files. I used fc-cache -v and I got errors about invalid cache files in ~/.cache/fontconfig.

The font seems to have been installed but I do not know if I should do anything about the errors.

It’s probably not critical, but you can force recreation of all caches:

fc-cache --really-force

first deletes all caches (that the current user can delete) and recreates them.

fc-cache -v

should be clean, afterwards.
