Bug where Internal Border is visible and can’t change its color. Tried changing through Xresources/Xdefaults through no avail.

So for some reason it destroys the layout of my TMux window status segments and special Unicode characters are displayed, but are much smaller than other.

You need to add space(s) after them I guess. This is a bit annoying if you want to have your config work with other terminal emulators, and you should keep in mind that the server might run from another terminal initially when using conditionals in your tmux conf.

@blueyed I was able to root the problems to this issue of mono font problems. So I went for the fork (PR still open) and it works. Just two points are open for me. So for some reason it destroys the layout of my TMux window status segments and special Unicode characters are displayed, but are much smaller than other. This make them unusable, since most of this special ones have a lot of details.

@weilbith Which font are you using?

I've switched myself also to Iosevka Term (via, which is a very nice font and supports ligatures! (I was using Ubuntu Mono before, which is a bit more condensed, but I am very happy with Iosevka Term)

In general Kitty's author is very supportive on the issue tracker (but search closed issues before, of course).

@blueyed I Trier it yesterday, but I didn't get the font work correclty. The links are off and also if --debug-font-fallback seems to Find the defined font and resolve special characters, the letters are looking different. This is not acceptable so far. Unfortunately it is hard to find more documentation and request with search machines including kitty...

Does Kitty work well for wide characters?

Yes. That was my main motivation for switching, and it was easy to get a patch with enhancements similar to the hack used here in there (display wide glyphs with spaces after them).

@blueyed sad. Maybe I should give Kitty a try. I loved this minimalism since the most features I already get by TMux. Moreover it is textual configurable. Does Kitty work well for wide characters?

@weilbith That's as good as it might get unfortunately. While I have big changes with regard to this patch locally, I am not finding the time to clean this up etc, and am switching over to using Kitty instead myself.

Powerlevel9k and NerdFont characters in general working well for me. But some "normal" unicode characters are messed up. Even adding 5 whitespaces does not help.

There's a new version of rxvt-unicode out. Version: 9.22-6.
