Recently I forced all of my system fonts to either use Noto Sans or Noto Color Emoji. However, charmap showed huge fallback emojis that looked like this: <code>charmap</code>

Problem exists in Firefox and even Chrome (Chrome uses Color Emoji). This website gives a normal result (no huge emojis). My question is: How do I fix this?

Update: 2nd case

2nd case


Fixed. Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/81wyq2/giant_emoji_in_terminal/dv617z8/

sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/

Then reload fontconfig: sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig

  • You don't actually need to reload fontconfig. Restarting the application in question should suffice. – Sebastian Job Bjørnager Jensen Aug 26 '19 at 9:03
