I'm recently switch over to gentoo again (after 2 years or something) and I'm sure that i3 fit my needs perfectly, but I have problem with making fonts work.
I like two fonts especially:
Anonymous Pro
DejaVu Sans Mono

but both seems to not be running on i3. Xfontsel doesn't see any fonts and I've got this problem, that never happened to me. There are some weird boxes instead of font. It's in attached .png

I'm not sure what to do, tried everything I could with the help of google and I'm not a kind of person who just switches to what he knows (e.g. openbox).

Who knows, maybe the problem is not in i3.

Maybe it's problem with urxvt? Try other terminal.

Haha, indeed I found a solve about the boxes in your post, and about xfontsel.

I had to recompile urxvt with xfs.

josel ...

an aside but the "Error: status command not found" (in the bottom right of the above png) is due to not having x11-misc/i3status installed and having 'status_command i3status' in i3 config (probably in 'bar {' ). So ether emerge i3status (or py3status) and/or edit the config.

best ... khay
