I have the font Fira Code installed on my computer but I can't target its bold variant using fontconfig in the same way I do with its other variants. Here's what
fc-match gives me:
$ fc-match "Fira Code" FiraCode_Regular.otf: "Fira Code" "Regular" $ fc-match "Fira Code Light" FiraCode_Light.otf: "Fira Code" "Light" $ fc-match "Fira Code Medium" FiraCode_Medium.otf: "Fira Code" "Medium" $ fc-match "Fira Code Bold" NotoSans-Regular.ttc: "Noto Sans" "Regular"
Noto Sans is my fallback font which I think means that
Fira Code Bold doesn't have any matches with any of my fonts.
However, it does match the right one if I run
$ fc-match "Fira Code:Bold" FiraCode_Bold.otf: "Fira Code" "Bold"
Following this question, I created a file called
~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d/ with the following content:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd"> <fontconfig> <match target="pattern"> <test name="family"><string>Fira Code</string></test> <test name="weight" compare="more_eq"><const>bold</const></test> <edit name="family" mode="assign" binding="strong"><string>Fira Code Bold</string></edit> </match> </fontconfig>
and then I ran
fc-cache -rv and logged out but it still gives me Noto Sans if I run
$ fc-match "Fira Code Bold". The only difference I have noticed is that it gives me Noto Sans even if I run
$ fc-match "Fira Code:Bold"; so basically I can't target the bold variant of Fira Code in any way now.
I'm running Archlinux, if it can help, and this is the output of
$ fc-list "Fira Code" | egrep -o 'FiraCode.*' FiraCode_Medium.otf: Fira Code,Fira Code Medium:style=Medium,Regular FiraCode_Light.otf: Fira Code,Fira Code Light:style=Light,Regular FiraCode_Regular.otf: Fira Code:style=Regular FiraCode_Bold.otf: Fira Code:style=Bold
Can anyone tell me how I can target Fira Code Bold using "Fira Code Bold"?
