[SOLVED] Some Font Awesome icons won't display correctly in panel

Post by esmith1412 »

When I install ArcoLinuxB Qtile using the latest ISO (v22.03.07) with the easy installer, and then I change some the panel icons to different ones, all of the new icons show up correctly; however, when I use the advanced installation, some of the icons are rendered incorrectly. ttf-font-awesome is installed in both versions, so I know that's not missing. Also, I tried installing all of the available fonts in the advanced version, but that didn't make a difference, and I don't know how any of the other, non-font packages I'm installing could affect how those icons are rendered. Here are two of the icons that don't show up properly:  and . Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In regards to fonts I have learned that adding more fonts can mess things up considerably.

That is why you are best off to choose a font and stick with it.

Mixing sometimes gives strange results and a broken look.

I guess one way of doing things is removing the icons you think broke the look and start from scratch.

Adding the one you think you like best.

I guess one of the other fonts must have been conflicting, because when I only installed ttf-font-awesome and ttf-ms-fonts, I was able to get it to work.
