Where does flatpak keep its fonts?
I have noto emoji fonts installed in my system that is using xfce.
But one flatpak app (viber) is still not displaying them.
I tried including Noto emoji font file in
but that didn’t help either.
Fonts are available in sandboxed flatpak here:
So viber should normally be able to catch them. Default would be:
$ flatpak run org.freedesktop.Sdk
[📦 org.freedesktop.Sdk ~]$ ls /usr/share/fonts/noto-emoji/
flatpak run --command=sh --devel com.viber.Viber
Still the same
error: runtime/org.freedesktop.Sdk/x86_64/23.08 not installed
I’m not sure what this even means. What kind of sdk and what to install if there is one? Thanks.
flatpak install org.freedesktop.Sdk/x86_64/23.08
Anyhow… Viber is responsible for their App. If it just take the default fonts in freedeskop, then it is their decision. I personally see no possibility to fix it on the user side.
In the AUR, there is also Viber, which should use the system fonts:
pamac buid viber
You’re right, but aur package doesn’t work. Doesn’t even start.
viber: error while loading shared libraries: libsnappy.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I’m so done with this Viber app. I will leave the flatpak one without noto emojis. At least it’s working.
Update: Installed separately snappy package and it’s working… Luckily I read the arch/aur comments.
Still don’t have emojis, even in Aur.
I’m starting to think I miss something else too…
I installed noto-emojis and joypixels.
