I recently started using Arch Linux and just installed Powerline and Fish (version 3.0.0) last week. In my terminal, which is Termite (version 14), there's a large (horizontal) space between the shell prompt and where my cursor is when inputting commands that is quite bothersome.
As additional information, I'm using OMF with the bobthefish theme. When I first installed and used the theme, I didn't notice any change, so I don't know if it's working properly. It does say that it is the active theme though.
It wasn't like this before I installed Powerline. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any other discussions on similar problems.
I was thinking that it could be a problem with my font, as I just checked and my font in the termite
.config file is Hack at size 9. When I use a Powerline font, however, it doesn't render correctly in the terminal. I tried doing both this way:
font = "Ubuntu\ Mono\ derivative\ Powerline" 11
And this way:
font = Ubuntu Mono derivative Powerline 11
In the terminal config file, but neither display properly. Perhaps the powerline fonts are not in the correct folder. They are located in
In fact, other fonts, located in
/usr/share/fonts also don't render correctly.
