With a cairo build, I think with an XFT build it could not display these
color emoji fonts at all.

Joypixels is not needed, the problem can also be seen with Noto Color

I reported a new bug for the emoji sequence display problem here:


In gedit, both “Noto Color Emoji” *and* “Joypixels” can display most
emoji sequences correctly. The latest version of “Joypixels” seems to be
slightly more up-to-date and can display a few sequences correctly which
cannot yet be displayed correctly using the latest “Noto Color Emoji”
(build from current git master) but this affects only a handful of

Most sequences display correctly in gedit and I think none of the emoji
sequences displays correctly in Emacs.
