I’m experimenting with powerline, and needed to install a patched font set to use with it. However,
xfce-terminal does not appear to recognize the fonts I just installed as being available. They’re just not in the list.
So far, I’ve installed:
community/powerline 2.8.1-2 [installed] Statusline plugin for vim, and provides statuslines and prompts for several other applications, including zsh, bash, tmux, IPython, Awesome, i3 and Qtile community/powerline-common 2.8.1-2 [installed] common files for python-powerline and python2-powerline community/powerline-fonts 2.8.1-2 [installed] patched fonts for powerline community/python-powerline 2.8.1-2 [installed] python library for powerline
I then rebooted and tried to select one of them in
xfce-terminal, but they’re not showing up.
Do I need to do something to update the font list? The directions at GitHub - powerline/fonts: Patched fonts for Powerline users. are a bit sparse.
EDIT: Is it possible that
powerline-fonts does not install any fonts, but rather uses overlay patches to make pre-existing fonts compatible with Powerline? Which would mean I need to install the fonts associated with the patches?
EDIT 2: Would I be better off using
awesome-terminal-fonts? They both confuse me, so I suppose I should focus my energies on learning how to use the one best suited to Manjaro…
