🎂🥂Emoji support

  • Running on a Raspberry Pi 4, and one of my calendar feeds has emoji in the event names. When accessing the MM with a browser, they display fine; on the screen connected to the Pi, however, they’re just little squares.

    I know this is more likely an electron, Node, or XWindows issue than MM itself, but has anyone found a solution for getting emoji to render properly?

  • Have you tried to write the emojis in HTML Codes?
    For your cake emoji it would be: 🎂

    & #127874;

    remove the spaces between the & and #

    Hope this helps!

  • That renders as the text, for some reason. However, the cake shows up properly after apt install fonts-noto-color-emoji and a reboot.
