[SOLVED] PolyBar Fonts & Icons

Post by chm0d » Fri May 04, 2018 12:32 pm

I apologize for the stupid question. I have read the Wiki for Polybar and I am not quiet understanding how the fonts & Icons are working. For example I would like to change the workspace icons to a certain text like a font called "Bootcamp". In the wiki they have font-0 = NotoSans-Regular, font-1 = MaterialIcons, font-2 = Termsynu, font-3 = FontAwesome. Now if I want to use one of those fonts for my workspace do I just specify font-0, font-1 etc as a variable?

Erik,

You can mark this as closed. Watched the videos again and figured out what I was doing wrong. I had to change the Font 0 instead of the Font 1 line.
