How to remove a strange square appearing in the widget bar?

I update EOS daily and for several weeks I have had a strange square (with “F64F” written inside it) showing on the widget bar.

Here is a screenshot (the square is before the date).

What is it and how could I remove it?

Don’t know which window manager you are using. But I suppose the plugin/widget for the date in your panel tries to display a symbol / graphic from an uninstalled font (or a font not supporting utf-8 characters). Some fonts have graphics in there.

You could try to right click on date and see if you can configure the display. May be there’s an option to display a (calendar?) icon before the date along with the date format string.

But it’s just a guess…


You’re right, thank you! The issue came from the config of the clock widget:

widget.Clock(format=' %Y-%m-%d %a %H:%M',
