As of version 1.5.8, this package is obsolete. Telegram has added an option to swap between preferred emoji sets, and its Android emoji set is higher quality than mine (the flags are stylized properly).

It's been fun maintaining telegram-desktop-systemqt-notoemoji, but I no longer see much use installing this package over telegram-desktop in [community].

Important! Emoji replacement is fixed in 1.4.4-2, but you need to delete ~/.local/share/TelegramDesktop/tdata/emoji after updating and restart Telegram

After an adventure with telegram codegen source and SVG manipulation tools, I've fixed the emoji replacement in 1.4.4-2, an adventure that's documented at https://github.com/aswild/telegram-emoji-gen

Notes: * This package now applies the new style of Noto Color Emoji. I don't like them as much as the flat designs, but I couldn't find too many SVGs for the old style. The flags are flat and kinda ugly, I'm not sure what needs to be done to stylize them properly. The new style is still better than the default Apple emoji, so I'll continue maintaining and using this package.

If anyone has advice on improving the above issues (fixing the flags and/or getting missing entries of the old style), I'd appreciate it.

On my side the emojis are not replaced. They look the same as in community/telegram-desktop.

EDIT: Read your github page and "rm -rf ~/.local/share/TelegramDesktop/tdata/emoji" did the trick

@OriginCode thanks for pointing this out, I'll look into it.

Need to figure out how to generate the webp spritemaps properly

@aswild Emoji is not replaced correctly in the latest version.

@aswild thx, I do have strip enabled. at least now I know there IS something wrong in my build options, so I know where to start troubleshooting.

aswild commented on 2018-05-24 13:46

@theforeigner The installed package should only be around ~30M.

If your telegram-desktop binary is over 1G, you probably have the "strip" option disabled in makepkg.conf.

Telegram is a huge C++ application that builds with -g, so the unstripped binary is over a gigabyte.

This package appears to be growing tremendously in size each update. Now it's > 1 GiB in size, and it was roughly 250 mb a few updates ago. Am I doing something wrong?

I've adopted this package and updated it to 1.2.8.

It's in-sync with the telegram-desktop package in [community] with only the emoji spritemap images replaced.

aswild commented on 2018-01-15 18:17

This is out of date, so I rebased the emoji changes on top of the official [community] telegram-desktop package (which also uses system Qt libs).
