I've finally got around to solving a puzzle in the terminal on my 8400. Whenever I opened an xml file for editing using the command line, I would get the following error message:
"~/.fonts.conf", lne 1: xml declaration not well-formed
As it's never stopped me from working, I've never really paid much attention to the message, but, as I had some time to spare today, I thought I'd see if I could work out what the it was telling me. Actually, it turned out that getting rid of this irritating error message was quite simple.
Opening the ~/.fonts.conf file from the command line (& receiving the usual error!):
sudo gedit /home/jogga/.fonts.conf
revealed that the quotation marks that define the variables in the file were of the wrong type - simply changing the double quotation marks (by deleting the existing marks and replacing them using the Shift + 2 keys) and rebooting the system was all that was required!
