I have two seemingly identical computers that display org-bullet utf-8 bullets differently within emacs. Both computers use the same OS (windows 7) and the same emacs version (24.5) with no modifications. Both computers use identical (synced) init.el files, packages and package folders, and themes (monokai).
The first computer displays the bullets correctly but the second computer seems to use placeholders for most of the bullets. Also, line spacing differs for the two computers:
The bullets display correctly on computer 2 when using a different theme (tangotango):
Any suggestions? Perhaps this is related to fonts missing or conflicting on the second computer? Note the monokai theme uses variable-pitch face.
