I have installed emacs26.3 for macosx, but when I run emacs, below error happen:

Font ‘Menlo’ is not defined

Then I try to install Menlo font with below command but not helpful

brew cask install font-menlo-for-powerline

How can I install Menlo font for macosx?

    Why/how is this a question about Emacs? Are you able to install the font for use outside Emacs? What does Emacs have to do with it?

  • Thanks, it should be a macosx issue and I have submitted a report to macosx forum as well. but I wish emacs experts maybe help me as well.

  • What is that you want to know, from Emacs experts?

  • font-menlo-for-powerline is a font named Menlo for Powerline. It is not named Menlo. The bigger mystery is: do you have Menlo? It should be included on every Mac OS X system. Try running the Font Book app to see if it's in the list.

Try using:

brew cask install homebrew/cask-fonts/font-menlo-for-powerline
