No icon in mail?

When i look at the i3blocks.config i see there is a icon missing for email.
As i am new to i3 is my question, how can I solve this?

You can copy and paste icons from this webpage (the icon itself, not the code) into your config file;

PS: depending on the version of font awesome you have installed, some icons may be unsupported.

do you have any additional awsome fonts or other iconic font packages installed?
As it could be causing confusion with these icon fonts.
If not I may need to change the used icon in default configs cause of a change in the used package (awsome-terminal-fonts)

@joekamprad No extra fonts installed it is pure with no additionals

Also I have noticed this, icon is now installed:

After closing my e-mail this happens with the icon:

i never have problem from here

this could be an issue with the used command for the on click action in i3bar?
But indeed try a different iconfont to see if the same is happening… i will have a look in the next days… but currently lazy Christmas :wink:

I can say that this happens on a fresh online installation of i3 with nothing installed extra


i3-msg -q exec gui-appname

That is the solution where I was waiting on :+1:
Strange after a fresh install it is not set that way, maybe a bug Herr Doktor?

i just changed config on github…

And seems not effecting like that for all GUI apps but indeed thunderbid does that screwing the icon and adding | on exit.
