I want to add fontawesome icons in the latex.

For example, with \faCalendarDay we can add the calendar icon and with \1faIcon{phone-square-alt} we can add the phone icon. These both are working fine with some others, but now I want to add this icon: https://fontawesome.com/icons/user-magnifying-glass?s=solid&f=classic

I tried \faIcon{fa-user-magnifying-glass}, but it did not work.

Is there something I am missing? Is there any specific pattern or rule for latex, or there is some limit that only specific icons can be added?

    both the fontawesome and the fontawesome5 package have a documentation which shows which font version and which icons they support. Commented Feb 15, 2023 at 10:40

Unfortunately, the icon fa-user-magnifying-glass is only available in the pro version of fontawesome5. I have just copied and pasted the information below directly from the manual for the free version of fontawesome5:

Font Awesome 5 is available in a Free and a Pro version. This package uses the free version by default. If you own a Pro license and have the Font Awesome 5 Pro desktop fonts installed in your system font path, you can use Pro instead. For this, load the package with the [pro] option: \usepackage[pro]{fontawesome5}
