Using Emoji on Linux

In this post, i will show you how to using emoji on your Linux system.

Step.1

Install emoji-keyboard:

Arch Linux based;
yay --noconfirm --noeditmenu -S --aur aur/emoji-keyboard-git
or pamac or octopi emoji-keyboard-git

It's easy way to using emojis on Linux systems.

Now commands for this package

emoji-keyboard -h //for help
-k //toggle visibility for emoji window
-s //toggle search emoji window
-p // for preferences window
-q // for quit
-v // for version
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Also you can add this command to shortcuts.
