At 10pt with antialiasing turned off this font looks like complete crap compared to the built-in one.

For me, this font was almost identical to the system Monaco at 16pt with antialiasing on. The only differences were the symbols on Powerline in vim. I tested it on OS X Mountain Lion in iTerm 2 with term type set to xterm-256color.

The linux version looks better with antialiasing turned off, but still not as good as the original. However, with antialiasing enabled, I can't detect any difference, at least at 14pt.

Tried the font, and I still don't get the triangle glyphs. What am I doing wrong?

The latest update of oh-my-zsh breaks this for me on OS X 10.8.3. Has anyone been able to find a replacement?

Both fonts don't work for me, but the linux version works however.

@lxyu same for me. Both fonts not functioning (as well as all patched fonts from https://github.com/Lokaltog/powerline-fonts).
But the one you've pointed out - works great. Thanks!

Hey, I noticed this font isn't tagged as monospaced so it doesn't show up in apps that only offer monospaced fonts.

I made a patched version here: https://gist.github.com/rogual/6824790627960fc93077

I don't know much about fonts — just opened it in Robofont and changed that one setting. But, the resulting font file is much smaller, so I may have broken it.

Can you guys please post your .Xresources files? Seems like it affects font misrendering a lot.

Maybe you can remove the "OSX" in title, because it works in Linux too :) but nice and thanks for this font
