I'm a huge fan of the patched Powerline fonts. Those extra icons add a ton of useful information.
I've also recently switched to
urxvt as I figure out
i3 and the
However, I quickly noticed the patched fonts aren't recognized by the repo

These X packages are necessary as well:
I ran into a Fedora issue right after that.

Which yielded the icons I was hoping for.
To make things easier, I've forked the repo with my changes. You can snag it and improve it if you'd like. Don't forget to clonely
--recursively to get the
