# Fontawesome briefcase styles

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{fontawesome5}

\begin{document}
\faBriefcase[light]
\faBriefcase[regular]
\faBriefcase[solid]
\end{document}


Fontawesome site shows 3 styles for the briefcase icon: https://origin.fontawesome.com/icons?d=gallery&q=briefcase

But I can't get them to work in my document, this code shows the same icon repeated 3 times.

Only the solid version of the briefcase symbol is available in the free version of the awesome font. If you want to use the other versions, you need the pro version

You can see this from the warnings you get:

Package fontawesome5 Warning: The requested icon briefcase has been replaced
(fontawesome5)                by the solid version

Package fontawesome5 Warning: The requested icon briefcase has been replaced
(fontawesome5)                by the solid version


Or by hovering over the symbols on the website you link to:

(notice the little "pro" in the top right corner)

• Thanks @book. I spent half a day migrating to sid to be able to use fontawesome5 just for this.

• @Rod Maybe a vanilla texlive installation would have spared you a migration to sid? Dec 4 '18 at 19:57
• I think so, but I also had some issues trying to install the package locally to my document not globally
