Powerline fonts

This repository contains pre-patched and adjusted fonts for usage with the Powerline <>_ statusline plugin.


Run ./ to install all Powerline Fonts or see the documentation_ for details.

.. _documentation:

Quick installation

If you are running a Debian or Ubuntu based Linux distribution, there should be a package available to install the Powerline Fonts with the following command: :: sudo apt-get install fonts-powerline

On other environments, you can copy and paste these commands to your terminal. Comments are fine too. :: # clone git clone --depth=1 # install cd fonts ./ # clean-up a bit cd .. rm -rf fonts


Run ./ to uninstall all Powerline Fonts. You can also copy the quick installation commands changing only the line ./ to ./

In both cases, please make sure you are working with the exact same version of Powerline fonts you had checked out while installing.

iTerm2 users need to set both the Regular font and the Non-ASCII Font in iTerm > Preferences > Profiles > Text to use a patched font (per this issue__).



In some distributions, Terminess Powerline is ignored by default and must be explicitly allowed. A fontconfig file is provided which enables it. Copy this file from the fontconfig directory to your home folder under ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d (create it if it doesn't exist) and re-run fc-cache -vf.
