manjaro i3 fonts.

i am driving my self bonkers looking and am looking for some help i want to change my i3 bar and dmenu fonts to Inconsolata

i noticed the font settings in.dmenu rc and tried to change to
DMENU_FN="Inconsolata-10"

but no joy

as far as the fonts in i3 bar and window decorations in i3
/etc/i3/config
and tried changing the font peram there to
font Inconsolata 10

both settings were no joy

do i have my syntax wrong or i looking in the wrong place?

thank in advance.

This might be helpful?

thanks that helped found this lines in ~/.i3/config

Font for window titles. Will also be used by the bar unless a different font

is used in the bar {} block below.

font pango:Inconsolata 10

and made the appropriate changes
now to figure out dmenu

Make sure that the DMENU_FN variable you have (correctly) set is called by the DMENU_OPTIONS variable in the last line of the file.
If uncertain please post the content of the ~/.dmenurc file.

Arch Wiki once again has some guidance.
Basically, what @bill_t said, in wiki form. :wink:
