This, "kpathsea", indicates that fontspec did not find the font name in the system's font service and therefore delegated the job of finding the font to TeX.

It is correct to edit the personal (lib)fontconfig configuration. This is kind of step 0. The important step is to cache the fonts. You can run fc-cache with -v or -vv so see whether all the fonts are found and treated correctly by the system. You can, you *should* use fc-list or fc-match to check whether the font service finds the font. If it does, then fontspec should do as well.
