When using emacs as daemon,

systemctl --user start emacs-27.service
emacsclient -c

and also the following directly:

emacs-27 --fg-daemon
emacsclient -c

the font config in :~/.emacs.d/init.el will not be used:

 'default nil
 :font (font-spec :name "-CTDB-Fira Code-light-normal-normal-*-*-*-*-*-d-0-iso10646-1"
                  :weight 'normal
                  :slant 'normal
                  :size 10.0))
(when (display-graphic-p)
  (dolist (charset '(kana han symbol cjk-misc bopomofo))
   (frame-parameter nil 'font)
   (font-spec :name "-SINO-STFangsong-normal-normal-normal-*-*-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1"
              :weight 'normal
              :slant 'normal
              :size 12.0))))

but when run emacs directly(no daemon), it can.


how do I let it use font config when run as daemon?

I'm using gentoo, and emerge -pqv give this:
