These are chat archives for mintty/mintty
This is a nerd font - DejaVuSansMono - but it's actually a WIP font (The nerd font maintainer gave it to me).
I saw on the mintty wiki there is a way to interpret ambiguous font width characters always at 2-space characters:
LC_CTYPE=zh_SG.utf8 mintty &
But I'm not sure what this is. I tried adding
LC_CTYPE as a system-wide environment variable - but that didn't do anything.
Also to note, hyper terminal also had a similar issue with clipped glyphs
That's just one example. But you can also tell that the first glyph (left of
8.58G) and the directory glyph (before
~/.aws) are both cut off on both sides.
When you say it's not a double width glyph - how do you know that? How can I find out what a glyph is coded as (in terms of double/single width)?
Yea I'm not sure, I'm trying to find out how to replicate. All I can do is get the icon to overlap.
So how can I force Mintty to interpret all ambiguous glyphs as double-width chars?
