No emoji are displayed on LibreOffice

Good morning everyone, I can’t get emoji to be displayed when I write text with write or with calc, if there is an emoji in the text it is not displayed but a blank space is displayed if instead I open the same file on linuxmint libreoffice shows me the emoji.
I have installed noto-colormoji-fonts, emoji-color-font, twemoji-color-font; but nothing to do they are not displayed in the text, is it a bug or is there any way to fix it?
thank you.

any idea to be able to solve and display emoji with LibreOffice ?

The emoji put were taken from Telegram the one above and copied to LibreOffice the one below and as see they are not displayed.

It’s working for me in TW, Gnome running on Wayland.
I only have the default emoji font installed: google-noto-coloremoji-fonts

Perhaps try resetting LibreOffice’s cache/config and reinstall the default emoji font package while removing everything else.

I installed using this link because the package was not present in the default repositories
https://software.opensuse.org/download/package?package=google-noto-coloremoji-fonts&project=home%3Aplasmaregataos

for the Leap 15.5 version that have uninstalled the noto-colormoji-fonts installed by default, and deleted the subdirectory present in /home/.config/libreoffice
as suggested.

But it does not work, the result in the first screenshot what comes in LibreOffice on Linuxmint and in the second screenshot what appears on OpenSuse 15.5 leap
LinuxMint


Leap 15.5

This only affects LibreOffice and not other applications, for example you can view the emojis in a text editor?
Could be something wrong with Leap’s version in that case.
Make sure your system is fully updated and reboot for good measure.

To be update the system is update, last one 16/02/2024
the display of emoji seems to be only on LibreOffice because clipboard and Kate show them although not all of them, but they are there

Oh, I don’t think that’s how they’re supposed to display. :disappointed:
Perhaps someone with access to Kate can chime in, maybe it’s a Kate thing but I doubt it.

Could you check KDE’s font settings, hope it’s not set to force everything into a restrictive monospace font or anything.

Certainly something is amiss. I can’t remember emojis displaying like this in my previous KDE installations, sorry I don’t have access to one atm to check. :sweat_smile:

On my standard Leap 15.5 installation I see:

The font is Noto Color Emoji (see the screen shot). It is installed from the outset, no extra packages installed to achieve this.

I inserted the emoji characters through menu Insert->Special Character.

My install for libreoffice has:

Do you have this installed? If not, try installing it.

By the way, Kate showed all but one of the emoji correctly. One showed as a black and white version of that same emoji (?)

known charaters were changed to google ones but did not change the display, except for the last one on the right.

maybe it really needs to be checked the KDE configuration at this point since those who have gnome are running regularly.

I found the reason for the error, at least in part…
I don’t know for what reason but in the
/home/user/.config/fontconfig/
there is a file “fonts.conf” that needs to be removed and as a result then the emoji come out in LibreOffice
On kate it doesn’t change.

Now the only thing to figure out is how come I had that file there, in /.config/fontconfig/

Thanks for the help…

I have that dir too ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d/ but it’s empty.
Hope you find the culprit!
