Font Book

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Has anyone been able to locate the Font Book database in Lion? It seems Apple decided to relocate it.

If you click info on Font Book in your Activity Monitor and 'open files and ports', it lists open files associated with the program. Might be in /usr/share/icu.

It does appear that there is a system file in that directory, but it does not seem to be the database for Font Book. Of note: Unless they changed the name in Lion, the database used to be a file named "fb.db".

Try checking the open files for the fontd daemon - there's an SQLite db inside one of the folders in /private/var/folders/ - it seems to be in a random folder name but is ultimately inside a folder called com.apple.FontRegistry. The file fb.db no longer exists.

Good call. I figured they had probably dropped the usage of fb.db. Oddly, my fontd daemon does not seem to be accessing an SQLite database. Guess I'll close and relaunch Font Book a few times and make some changes in activated/deactivated fonts and see what changes.
