Thanks for investigating and tracking this down! It looks like to me that the fonts.conf file needs a full sync - that is, the part at the bottom with fonts-cache / user-fonts-cache is also relevant. See, e.g.:

Updated to add the font caches.

Can you:

  • Add a comment pointing to the freedesktop-sdk source file that we're copying
  • Also include the <cachedir prefix="xdg">fontconfig</cachedir> line with the comment above it
  • Bump the version-release of flatpak-runtime-config.spec to 30-1 and add a %changelog line like "Update fonts.conf to match freedesktop-sdk, allowing using-installed fonts to work"

You can squash everything together into one big commit, since I don't think it actually breaks apart cleanly.

Updated according to your comments.

Looks great except for one tiny thing. (If you'd prefer I can fix that and push your patch.)

Updated to change the URL. I thought it would break if the file was renamed. However, there is no good solution to that.
