Can you try running samplecfg without the second parameter and without 
root-rights? Then it should create a .fpc.cfg in your home-directory. So 
there is no need to rename the file.

If you supply a second parameter with the location where you want to 
write the configuration-file to, samplecfg does not know it is in your 
home-directory, so it will use a normal, visible, file. At least that is 
how I would say it should work.
