yes. hi. hello. me again. wow i really love this intro.
anyway i want to start using emojis more in my writing.
i installed an emoji plugin in my text editor and i would like it if i could start to use emojis more in my writing for hilarious dramatic effect 🎉.
they aren’t fucking showing up 😠
- 🎉 hooray
- 🙂 smile

if you want emojis in goland type this
pacaur -R goland pacaur -S goland goland-jre pacaur -S ttf-fira-code symbola noto-fonts-emoji-apple terminus-font fc-cache -fvr sudo reboot now
so i run arch linux and here is how i solved the problem of having fabulous emojis in any intellij/goland/clion like IDE
if you check the arch packages - you can notice that there are specific Java Runtime Environments (JRE) packages for different IDEs
(this is the fucking problem)
i had installed
jre11 and that was what was fucking me up
install the idea (the right way)
i started with
so naturally i installed goland via
pacaur -S goland
and this was the problem - i then used a “normal” JRE and that was 100% why my emojis weren’t showing up.
it was an older JRE that didn’t support monospace embedded emojis.
here is what you want to do.
pacaur -S goland goland-jre
pacaur -S clion clion-jre
pacaur -S intellij-idea-community-edition-jre
okay now i like shit to be pretty - so here are the fonts that i like the most - and if you want to have pretty arch linux you want these too.
note: i like
noto-fonts-emoji-apple because i think the apple emojis are pretty - however you can substitute
noto-fonts-emoji if you want
pacaur -S ttf-fira-code symbola noto-fonts-emoji-apple terminus-font
trust me - you want
make your idea pretty
reset your font cache for good measure
fc-cache -fvr sudo reboot now
now you can go to your settings and edit your fonts in
goland or whatever
i suggest checking out
fira-code for your main font and
noto-color-emoji for your emoji font
also grab the yet another emoji support plugin
now you can type
: in your ide and it will start to populate emojis just like in slack
