I have seen the issue here: https://github.com/powerline/powerline/issues/1697. But the solution there doesn't work for me.
There is a similar question but his question was to achieve it without installing powerline here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/32443522/triangular-background-for-bash-ps1-prompt
I am using Ubuntu 16.04. How do I get it right?
Edit: I have tried the following ways:
1) Used powerline fonts but made no difference.
2) Installation was done using pip3. It was installed under python3.5 directory. Since it is not giving the desired result, I have uninstalled and installed it using pip. But the installation directory remained same i.e. python3.5 and the result also remained the same. I then tried installing with
python2.7 -m pip install powerline-status and it installed under python2.7 directory and it resulted in the same.
