re: Making Powerline Work In Visual Studio Code Terminal VIEW POST


When I add "Menlo for Powerline" in settings, VSCode say "The terminal only supports monospace fonts."


Hmm. I just tried this again (on a recently updated VS Code) and it worked for me. This is on OS X; what OS are you on?


I have the very same issue here and I can't get the powerline fonts working on VS code with ubuntu.


Try setting: "terminal.integrated.fontFamily": "monospace",

still not working...

Edited: My Solution.

instead of moving the font file to hidden folder .fonts in user home do this in ubuntu

sudo mv Menlo\ for\ Powerline.ttf /usr/share/fonts/

then sudo fc-cache -vf /usr/share/fonts/

I'm using ubuntu 18.04 at the moment of writting this, hope it helps.


I had the same problem. What worked for me was setting "terminal.integrated.fontFamily": "Menlo for Powerline" and restarting Visual Studio Code. Making sure not to press the "monospace" dialog that Visual Studio Code presents as this would set "terminal.integrated.fontFamily": "monospace"
