I found this i3 setup (http://dotshare.it/dots/1011/) and want to configure it on my own machine to customize it using this base. Starting with urxvt's config I fail on the Lemon fonts at the moment.

As I downloaded lemon from the AUR package

I was able to find lemon fonts in format .pcf here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/phallus-fonts-git/ .

Installing it showed me:

~ $ ls /usr/share/fonts/misc/
fonts.dir            lemon-ISO8859-15.pcf  lemon-ISO8859-4.pcf  lemon.pcf            uushi-ISO8859-15.pcf  uushi-ISO8859-4.pcf  uushi.pcf
lemon-ISO8859-1.pcf  lemon-ISO8859-2.pcf   lemon-ISO8859-9.pcf  uushi-ISO8859-1.pcf  uushi-ISO8859-2.pcf   uushi-ISO8859-9.pcf

So far so good.

URxvt.font:xft:lemon:pixelsize=10
URxvt.boldFont:xft:Lemon:bold:pixelsize=10
URxvt.italicfont:xft:Lemon:italic:pixelsize=10
URxvt.bolditalicFont:xft:Lemon:bold:italic:pixelsize=10

Here you can see the font specific configuration I downloaded. It depends on the font-alias Lemon.

Running

~ $ fc-match Lemon
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

tells me that there isn't one defined therefore it uses the fallback font. I checked /usr/shares/fonts for any fonts.alias but none was yet available.

So I tried to apply the full name of the font for instance lemon-ISO8859-1

 URxvt.font:xft:lemon-ISO8859-1:pixelsize=10

Which resulted in the fallback font but with bigger font size somehow.

I found the answer here https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxquestions/comments/64nqt0/trying_to_use_bitmap_fonts_in_urxvt_is_just_not/

Actually the real name is only findable when using fc-list
