Failing to initiate font files download in Sage


I know similar topic have been published and I read most if not all of them. Still, I’m banging my head on the wall due to trouble with FontAwesome.

Namely, I’ve got everything set up as expected:


dep: "font-awesome": "fontawesome#~4.5.0"

 "font-awesome": {
   "main": [


// bower:scss
@import "../../bower_components/bootstrap-sass-official/assets/stylesheets/_bootstrap.scss";
@import "../../bower_components/font-awesome/scss/font-awesome.scss";
// endbower
<the rest of includes>

dsit/fonts contains the fonts files - both Glyphicons and FontAwesome

The dependency is loaded, the stylesheets compiled, font files present where expected. Still, when I inspect the “Network” tab with Chrome dev tools, no font files are fetched whatsoever, the symbols are not rendered correctly.

I didn’t want to post this one again, but honestly, I’m in the dark. What am I doing wrong?

To my great surprise, no font files are downloaded when I’m on Version Chrome 47.0.2526.111 (64-bit).

All is good on Chromium Version 39.0.2171.65 Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit) and Firefox.

I’ve started using ‘original’ Chrome on Ubuntu only recently due to some shortcomings with “native client” in Chromium (I wasn’t able to connect through RDP to another computer).

No idea why Chrome on Linux wouldn’t fetch fonts… Anyways, that was the problem.
