What would you like to do?
Monaco for vim-powerline

INSTALL

Just download and put into your ~/.fonts dir and run fc-cache -vf

If you're using urxvt add something like this to your ~/.Xresources or ~/.Xdefaults:

URxvt*font:                 xft:Monaco for Powerline:regular:size=8
URxvt*imFont:               xft:Monaco for Powerline:regular:size=8
URxvt*boldFont:             xft:Monaco for Powerline:bold:size=8
URxvt*italicFont:           xft:Monaco for Powerline:italic:size=8
URxvt*boldItalicFont:       xft:Monaco for Powerline:bold:italic:size=8

Make sure to run xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources afterwards and close all urxvt terminals.

Thank you !!! Tried tons of things, and that finally worked for me.

I'm not an expert with fonts, but I have a slow terminal due to heavy zsh/tmux/vim confs, and one way to make that faster would be to disable xft. I can't run urxvt if I just drop out the "xft:" part of your lines, do you have an idea how to do that ?

hmm also this patched font contains very few characters :( It messed up my zsh theme, because all those characters aren't handled by your font. Don't really know what to do now

Ok I finally changed font (Menlo for Powerline found here: https://gist.github.com/1595572), which contains a lot more chars, making my vim and zsh looking fine. Your procedure is great, it would be nice for next urxvt users to have it included in vim-powerline doc or wiki

Unless there is something wrong with Konsole, Yakuake, and Gvim, there is something wrong with the character 'f'.
It causes something like a ligature (for example, typing 'fi', makes it look exactly like the picture in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typographic_ligature).
It is the only problem I've encountered.

I use win7 and gvim7.3. I can install this patched font. However, I cannot switch to this font! Why?

original monaco font is workable. does this patch font only use under Linux? any one can help?

This font doesn't work with the current version of powerline, since the code points changed in march.
