Joplin layout and emojis

Hi,
How to make joplin display emojis under Ubuntu Linux?
How to make it look nicer its ugly?

How ugly? Can we see a screenshot?

Hi,
My OS is:

Kernel: 5.3.0-40-generic x86_64 bits: 64
Desktop: Xfce 4.14.1 Distro: Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine)


Below next to Joplin I’m including few other text apps like:
gedit, leafpad, remarkable, mousepad, notes.

So once again: what do I need to do in order to make Joplin nicely display emojis all over the app?

Thank you very much
Szymon

@Szymon This solution worked for me.

@johano thank you for your answer.
I can see you have beautiful emojis on your side :wink: lucky you
Unfortunately nothing changed for me despite the fact I followed the article.
I installed NOTABLE and I see the same crap. Only UNCOLOURED renders emojis properly.

Sorry it didn’t work for you. Are you able to see the Noto Color Emoji font in the font menu on other programs, e.g. LibreOffice Writer?

I’m using Solus here, but as far as I remember in Ubuntu the user added fonts live in ~/.local/share/fonts , although it would surprise me if a font added to ~/fonts - as the described in the web article - didn’t work also.
Hope you find solution

  1. I reinstalled Ubuntu Gnome 19.10 to:
    Desktop: Gnome 3.30.2 Distro: Zorin OS 15.2
  2. I then installed gtk,glib,pango,libcairo and the following macos themes:

sh
