I ended up having to make some tweaks to the fontpatcher script to get Inconsolata-dz to line up perfectly in MacVim.

Here is my font file for anyone else who stumbles upon this:

Enabled using set guifont=Inconsolata-dz\ for\ Powerline:h13

Here are my changes to the fontpatcher script:

Can someone update these fonts to the new code points? ohmyzsh/ohmyzsh#1872

You can get the menlo patched font at least from my dotfiles here:

I couldn't find a decent font with the new code points, so I ripped the menlo ttc from OS X and patched it.

@justin8 your Menlo font is not working

Can someone provide a Menlo patched font please ?

monokrome commented Feb 9, 2014

@Toogy Not sure if this works for you, but this copy of Menlo seems to have solved the problem for myself.

I don't know if this helps anyone else, try changing your iTerm's profile to Pastel (Dark Background). It fixed the icon display issue for me. My terminal now looks exactly like FYI, I did install the above fonts.

Superlative work!

These fonts don't seem to work? I just installed these, along with Prezto, then when I choose one of these fonts in iTerm2, the font changes in the terminal, but the ugly symbols remain (I don't see the nice powerline triangles).

I have the same problem as trukstr. I installed the fonts from but not all icons are shown correctly

Once you go through the font installation you need to set the fonts in whatever you are using for that profile.
For me it was iTerm2 on latest Mac OSx
Go to preferences > select the profile you are using > Text tab
Now set both the Font and Non-ASCII Font to one the ends in Powerline.

If there are not fonts that end in Powerline it is not installed correctly.
Frankly with all of the issues I was surprised I got it to work in 2016 :)

@topdown What's the bullet and the plus sign after the branch name ? I don't have this using the exact same theme but with SourceCode Pro for Powerline ?
