            If I understand correctly, there are two parts to the question.

            Changing the PowerShell Window Font

            To do this, right-click your PowerShell window and head to "Properties"

            There, you can choose the header "Font" and change your font to Cascadia Code PL".

            This should fix the problem. If you still experience some weird characters, you might need to install a Nerd Font instead.

            Changing the VS Code Terminal Font

            To use the font in the VS Code Terminal, head to Settings.

            Searching for "integrated terminal font family" should bring up the setting you need to edit. Here, add your font 'Cascadia Code PL' on the very front of the setting and save.

            Integrated:Font Family"" />

            You should now be able to open a terminal and use the PL prompt.

            This answer is for everyone, who wants to install powerline only in vim in the windows terminal (using wsl Ubuntu 20.04). It took me quite some time.

            The reason why I had this issue was that glyphs where missing in the windows terminal font. I tried to install the powerline fonts according to the documentation(https://powerline.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installation/linux.html#fontconfig) as @romainl suggested but that didn't work. Furthermore I tried to install all powerline fonts from the github(https://github.com/powerline/fonts), I ran both the installation scripts. The one for windows in the powershell console according to this blog() and the one for Linux on the Ubuntu WSL Machine according to the documentation. Didn't work either. Then I stumbled upon a blog post of Microsoft(https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/terminal/tutorials/powerline-setup), where the person installed a theming framework oh-my-posh. However, I neither wanted to install a theming framework nor a special version of git. Furthermore I only wanted to install powerline in vim not in my whole console. This was the moment when I asked myself: did I miss something? And indeed I did catch a little detail. The answer was to install a the Cascadia Mono PL font (https://github.com/microsoft/cascadia-code/releases) which includes the missing glyphs. Just download the zip and double click on the font. Furthermore I had to set the fontface in the setting.json of the windows terminal (which can open with pressing (CTRL + ,) in the terminal). Your settings should look something like this:

            How to print the timestamp on the terminal when user press Enter
            Asked 2021-Apr-04 at 20:53

            First of all I am new to Linux and Rust.

            What I am trying to achieve is to print the timestamp to the terminal whenever a user execute a command in the terminal.

            I have written a Rust program which will print the current timestamp on the right extreme of the terminal. I was planning to execute this program as systemd service in the background using a bash script. What this bash script does is inside an infinite loop, check the key press and if it is Enter, then execute the rust program. Before I execute the real Rust program, I just tried to echo a string. When I was running the service, I noticed that when I press Enter, echo runs many times before it stops. I also tried to execute the Rust program instead of the echo, but it didn't work the way I imagined. So my solution is wrong smewhere.

            My question is, is my approach for this correct? I don't know whether running a background process with an infinite loop is good. This idea I took from the below video.

            Creating systemd Service Files

            This project is for educational purpose. I was inspired by the Powerline project and wanted to understand how it works and do something similar in small scale using Rust.

            Could you guys let me know whether this approach is correct or point me to the right direction. Thanks

            How can i make coc.nvim check code's semantics in insert mode?
            Asked 2020-Dec-18 at 02:30

            So I'm using neovim(v0.4.3) and Coc.nvim(v0.0.79) and clangd with C++ and C . The problem is that the syntax checking highlights errors only in normal mode. meaning that i have to type my statements in insert mode and then go to normal to see if i have any errors. and i want to be able to see my errors while im in insert mode. So i am wondering if this only happens to me or this is a common thing. and if there are any fixes to this please let me know. here i included some lines of my init.vim

            Following this little guide solved the issue making-powerline-work-in-visual-studio-code-terminal.

            (1) Install a patched version of your desired font directly from https://github.com/powerline/fonts. Apparently doing the "quick installation" (e.g. sudo apt-get install fonts-powerline) does not work in this case. So you can install manually downloading the .ttf file or running the install script ./install.sh provided.

            (2) Add this to User Settings where $FONT is the font you want to use (e.g. Menlo for Powerline)

            Powerline Expecting ',' delimiter: line 55 column 6 (char 4037) error
            Asked 2020-Dec-05 at 04:57

            I'm using powerline, bash, and iterm2 on mac. I also installed gitstatus, but that didn't work when I installed it two days ago, and powerline worked just fine yesterday without gistatus functioning. Today, when I booted up the terminal, this error showed instead of the prompt.

            Any advice? Where can I find the full log of the errors/interpret this message? Alternatively, how can I pinpoint which file has an error on line 55?



            Answered 2020-Dec-05 at 04:57

            There error was in a color config file for the github integration. I was missing a comma at between lines. I believe it was in this file .config/powerline/colorschemes/default.json or another json related to it; see here.

            Ultimately, I recommend moving to powerlevel10k. You can configure it to look exactly like powerline, but it a) updates cleanly (compared to powerline where if you update your python it breaks horribly) and b) comes with a really good customization setup and c) lets you use zsh + oh-my-zsh which gives so much additional functionality

            Problem: Shutting down pc resets powerline fonts so they don't appear in VS Code (but they do in Ubuntu terminal)
            Asked 2020-Dec-04 at 09:30

            I managed to get the Powerline fonts working on my Windows 10 pc to use in WSL, particularly in the VS Code terminal window so I can use the Agnoster oh-my-zsh terminal theme. I set it all up and everything works - cool.

            BUT when I shutdown my pc and restart it, the font no longer works in VS Code. However, it does still work in the ubuntu window. See ↓

            https://i.imgur.com/SCyDrFM.png -- Sorry, I don't have enough rep to post images :(

            I noticed it is not installed in the settings > font window

            But it is installed in the control panel fonts window.

            Current workaround

            I can get the font to work again if I reinstall the font, at which point Windows will prompt me that The font is already installed, do I want to reinstall?. Click yes.

            At which point the font will appear in the fonts settings (Add fonts) window.

            What is going wrong with the font installation? Reinstalling the font after every boot seems tedious... I suppose I can get a script to automate that on startup but I really want to get to the root cause.


            So I just found the fix - had to right click on the .ttf file and 🛡️Install for all users.

            I don't know why installing it as the local user didn't work but hey ¯\_(ツ)_/¯



            Answered 2020-Sep-20 at 21:41

            I found the answer to my own question...

            Have to right click on the .ttf file and 🛡️Install for all users.

            It seems that if the font is not listed in the Settings > Personalization > Fonts window, VS Code will not find it. Installing for all users makes the font persist there after reboot.
