I3wm icons being messed up

When I have installed EndeavourOS, I’ve choosen to install the official i3 flavour and after install, I booted to i3 and the icons in the menus and bar were normal. After I have extracted my old home, which it had a LOT OF fonts in ~/.fonts and ~/.local/share/fonts , they were not as they were before

e.g the powermenu

the battery mode menu

the i3bar

my ~/.config/i3/config (i didn’t change like anything, it’s the default)

# Font for window titles. Will also be used by the bar unless a different font
# is used in the bar {} block below.
# This font is widely installed, provides lots of unicode glyphs, right-to-left
# text rendering and scalability on retina/hidpi displays (thanks to pango).
font pango: Noto Sans Regular 10

bar {
                font pango: Noto Sans Regular 10

Try noto-fonts-cjk and/or noto-fonts. There are other noto fonts inside the repos. Just try the rest if those two don’t work. Maye that will do the trick.

And try renaming the font folders you mentioned and see if that helps.

the iconic fonts on the eos i3 setup are all setup using only one iconic font package … if you add others you will need to recheck, and my choose different ones in the configs … but basically having different iconic font packages installed can cause confusion…

awesome-terminal-fonts is the one used… the most stable on also.

i changed both the rofi and i3 fonts to NotoSans Nerd Font 10 and i commented the font pango under the bar {} section and now the icons are shown correctly :smile:
Thanks everyone for the help
