Dear List,

After updating to R 3.10 and Bioconductor 2.14, I'm having a rather frustrating error whenever I try using function like cairo_ps to save eps figures as demonstrated in the following example:

Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file

The plot displays distorted text (attached), and I just couldn't figure out where the fix is after google for hours. Any helps will be very much appreciated.

Many thanks,
