I can't figure out how to use icon fonts (specifically font awesome) with Conky. I've looked through the documentation on Font Awesome's website but none of their methods work for me. I have the fonts installed on my system and I know how to reference the font in Conky.


Code:
${font Font Awesome 5 Free:style=Regular:pixelsize=14}
My problem is that I don't know how to refer to the actual icon. When I look at other Conky config files where people have used Font Awesome, the actual character is just a vertical rectangle. And it's the same vertical rectangel for ALL icons. I don't know how to make he icon I want appear in Conky.

Can someone point me in the right direction, please?
