I have been toying around with i3 and like many others ran into a few snags working with Unicode characters. The majority of them resolved by installing fonts or pointing config files to the installed fonts. Now out of curiosity I've been poking at this unicode.vim plugin, and am having issues getting the unicode tables to display the characters within. I'd like to use the unicode auto completion feature of unicode.vim, but with most characters within the tables displayed as empty boxes it has pretty limited use.
I guess I'm not sure if this is normal or not - Is there something I can do to configure vim / my terminal (Urxvt -> tmux on i3) to display most or all of the characters within the table? I'd like to be able to use this table to quickly search up new symbols instead of using a web browser and finding a code / font online. I've spent a considerable amount of time reading through man pages and wiki with no luck. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction, this would really speed up my use of these symbols. I'm really looking for a way to lookup unicode symbols quickly without having to open a web browser. Thanks!
