Keep needing to reinstall terminus font for programs to recognize it

Hi,

This is unfortunately a difficult problem to troubleshoot since I have not been able to reproduce it reliably, but I'm posting it on the off-chance that someone else has run into a similar problem.

I use urxvt as my terminal, with terminus-font. After updating my packages, it is not uncommon for new instances of urxvt to no longer recognize the font. Every time this happens, simply re-installing terminus via pacman solves the issue. At first I thought it might be urxvt-related, but I tried restarting polybar (which also used terminus) after an update and found that it also did not recognize the font. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on? I haven't been able to isolate what it is about some updates that causes this but not others, but maybe someone else has had this issue before.

That's it! Thanks; not sure why how I convinced myself this was associated with pacman upgrades...I guess I must just only open discord while I'm waiting for packages to update. Switching to otb fixes it.

Cool.

Please always remember to mark resolved threads by editing your initial posts subject - so others will know that there's no task left, but maybe a solution to find.
Thanks.
