I am running on Ubuntu 14.04 x64, and I've just installed FontAwesome - firstly by running install on the
ttf file, which I grabbed from http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/; and secondly by discovering it's in the repo and running:
sudo apt-get install fonts-font-awesome
Opening the font viewer I can see the fonts:
However, when I open the character map, I don't see them:
Should I be selecting any particular Script? I skimmed down the list to see if I can get to see the FontAwesome icons, but nothing jumped out at me.
What I am after is to find the unicode character code for particular icons. I know FontAwesome has a cheat sheet with the unicode's: https://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/cheatsheet/, however, I'd like to be able to determine the codes from my system.
Another example is font-mfizz, which doesn't offer a similar cheat sheet (at least from what I can tell). I did however find that submitting the
woff font - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DanBrooker/file-icons/master/resources/fonts/font-mfizz.woff - to the site http://www.pkmurphy.com.au/glyphviewer is able to print out the code points:
Is this glyphviewer tool my best option?
