There is currently an update to this. Is there any word here of updating it on the AUR?

Flagged out of date since 8-15-23

Until recently everything worked fine minus the Fonts. But I recently reinstalled to a fresh install of Arch Linux (EndeavorOS) and Now Im finding that Voice, and media does not play sound anymore. Wondering if anyones got a fix for this?

hopefully they'll update this asap @mim

@mim Thank you for that valuable piece of information! Commenting it out in /usr/lib/firestorm/firestorm did the trick until they fix it properly.

I spoke with one of the firestorm devs or support people or whatever they were about this awhile back. They are aware of it and are apparently rewriting font handling on linux for the next version.

In the meantime you can fix it by commenting out

export FONTCONFIG_PATH=/etc/fonts

in /usr/lib/firestorm/firestorm. It will take a bit longer to start though.

this is also happening in my client. more specifically, i'm missing 亗, ツ (and likely many others) , which works systemwide as part of cjk fonts, but seems to be missing in firestorm.

i have noto-cjk installed, so i think firestorm uses some other sort of unicode mechanic to render these characters. it's worth noting that if you open up the internal browser in firestorm that these characters display just fine, but inworld, no luck. also, this only seems to be happening in the linux client of firestorm (this one), not in the windows

any explanation?

@alisamenna - that's what I thought initially too, but the missing characters display fine across the system and other apps. Just in Firestorm they're not displayed. That's why I thought it might be something that needed tweaking here.

I don't know how to reply to comments directly but sysconfig inquired about special characters so here's my two cents. It is due to the lack of fonts installed and accessible by the operating system.
