I tried installing vim-devicons to be used with nerdtree(using vim-plugin). I tried devicons FAQ, everything is fine except "check if you are able to see the characters, from ex mode:", i tried running
But this command gives no icons result.
Also it says that devicons is to be used with NerdFonts, I had trouble installing that. Can anybody guide me through the commands used to install regular ubuntu font on my ubuntu 18.04?
Installing Nerd fonts for my ubuntu 18.04 worked. As the devicons FAQ page said, it was designed for nerd fonts.
