# LaTeX moderncv casual: omit icons

I am preparing my CV with moderncv and chose the casual style. Now, I would like to omit the icons for phone, email etc. How do I do this? Thank you very much in advance!

You just have the redefine the several symbols to be empty. For example for the adress symbol you use:

\renewcommand*{\addresssymbol}{}


For all symbols (choose that one you need, comment the others) see the following MWE (after personal datas you find the redefinition of the symbols):

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}

% moderncv themes
\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{blue}

% character encoding
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}
\setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{3.5cm}

% personal data
\name{John}{Doe}
\title{Resumé title}
\phone[mobile]{+1~(234)~567~890}
\phone[fixed]{+2~(345)~678~901}
\phone[fax]{+3~(456)~789~012}
\email{john@doe.org}
\homepage{www.johndoe.com}
\social[github]{jdoe}
\photo[64pt][0.4pt]{example-image-a}
\quote{Some quote}

\setlength{\footskip}{66pt}

\renewcommand*{\mobilephonesymbol}{}
\renewcommand*{\fixedphonesymbol}{}
\renewcommand*{\faxphonesymbol}{}
\renewcommand*{\emailsymbol}{}
\renewcommand*{\homepagesymbol}{}
\renewcommand*{\githubsocialsymbol}{} % <================================

\begin{document}

\makecvtitle

\section{Education}

\section{Master thesis}
\cvitem{title}{\emph{Title}}
\cvitem{supervisors}{Supervisors}
\cvitem{description}{Short thesis abstract}

\cvitem{Staatsangehörigkeit}{Deutsch}
\cventry{\textbf{Staats\-angehörigkeit}}{Deutsch}{}{}{}{}

\end{document}


and the result:

• Note that in recent versions, the call is \mobilesymbol, not \mobilephonesymbol. – Richard Sep 23 '16 at 15:06
