Hi All

I've been having some problems and think I may be really messing up my system for the past 3 weeks I have been fighting with my i3-status setup and can't figure out why it won't use color Emojis in my status ..

Best way to show you what is happening is by giving a pic

NO COLOR PIC

Mike

Finally Solved my problem with not being able to get the Color Icons in I3BLOCKs

Finally found that the unicode was not from EmojiOne-Color.ttf like I was told but in fact was NotoColorEmoji.ttf and you can make it work by doing the following:



I3BLOCKS IN COLOR PICTURE


Thanks

If you just want one file, there's no need to clone the whole repository. Github lets you download single files raw. For the one you stated, https://github.com/googlefonts/noto-emoji/raw/master/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf will give you that file, so you could instead do:
Code:
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/fonts && cd ~/.local/share/fonts && curl -O https://github.com/googlefonts/noto-emoji/raw/master/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf
