    It's a bit expensive, and I can understand if someone can't or doesn't want to spend money on it. I would recommend to check out the free fonts 'JetBains Mono' & 'Hack' to these people.

    Some people have already mentioned here that Berkeley Mono is not available as Nerd Font. I would like to briefly point out that Nerd Fonts provides a font patcher tool (

    There are a lot of code fonts on HN today. Rather than make a new post I will talk about some of my favorite that are a little less common. None of these are free I don't think.

    Cartograph CF - The one I've been using for code for years. Very readable, almost "comic mono"-like choices of some of the lower case glyphs but in a good way. All the character is in the italic which you will either love or hate.

    Quadraat sans mono - The entire quadraat family is a collection of masterpieces imo, but are generally too distinctive to be appropriate for most public-facing work. But it's your computer so who cares. I use the mono sans one for my terminal. The lowercase f seems so out of place there but you learn to love it.

    Alegreya sans - Not a mono font, but it almost is so if you've ever flirted with proportional fonts for code this is a fun one to try. There is a lot of careful line width variation that gives a lot of the appearance and readability advantages of serifs but keeps most of the visual coherence of sans.

    I like all of these because they look feel more like normal fonts rather than code fonts. They have careful variation that adds character and improves readability for me. I've switched to an almost-no-color code theme that uses font weight instead, and the details like this become more important that way.

    And then only kind of related but if you want to use unusual fonts in your terminal but you have a complex prompt setup, install font forge and learn to use something like to patch in the extra characters. This can also solve your "I love this font but want a dotted zero" type problems as well. Small skill investment for a small return over a long period of time. You'll always be using fonts.

    I'm assuming you're using a Nerd Font already, since I see the Rust logo and folder icons in your terminal. However, it's possible that your particular font is based on Nerd Font 2.x and the newest version is 3.x. Maybe try scanning your Lua config with nerdfix to identify whether the diagnostics icons you have set (among others) are using outdated 2.x character codes. If they are, try replacing them in your config, and also try upgrading your terminal's Nerd Font compliant font to the latest version (NF's GitHub release page says 3.0.1 is the newest version). Hope this helps your troubleshooting efforts!
