Emojis on Ubuntu

Updated at 2022-10-20 18:52

Install Emote e.g.

snap install emote

Open the Emote app and change the global keybinding to Ctrl+.

Now you can type emojis anywhere โœ…

Note that the automatic paste-on-enter does not work in all applications so you need to manually paste the emojis. Emote will automatically write the emoji on your clipboard if your try to use it.

You can also optionally just place one or more emojis just to clipboard:

  • Ctrl+. > search with Ctrl+f > select with arrows and Shift+Enter > repeat, they will all go to clipboard shown at bottom right > close with Ctrl+.
