I am currently using Zsh + Prezto for my scripting shell configuration. I have been using the
theme but am a little dissatisfied with it. I'd like to switch to the paradox
It is supposed to look like this:
I'm having some trouble doing that. When I switch to the theme, the symbols aren't able to load, so I get a prompt that looks like this:
Notice the boxed question marks where there should be an edge border for the background or a branch symbol for the git branch. (Take a look at the
theme preview here
I've seen here
that I should install Powerline patched fonts
for the symbols to load in correctly. However, as I'm somewhat unfamiliar with the process, I would love some help installing it into my OS X.
In the documentation
, it notes I should install via
. When I run
pip install --user powerline-status
, my prompt is still unable to display the symbols the way it should look.
What else must I do, after running the installation, to display this prompt correctly?
I am using a MacBook Pro with El Capitan
Update: I have installed the powerline fonts and run the install.sh exec, changed my terminal preferred font, and tested out the new look of the prompt. The symbols now display, however, they are raised from the baseline of the prompt row, like so:
Notice that the symbol of "\ue0b0" is elevated from the bottom of the row.
