Hi following - doesnt work, since /dev/uinput is not user writable on arch


as well as

So we need s.t. like:

KERNEL=="uinput", GROUP="uinput", MODE="0660"




groupadd uinput

and maybe the hint to

usermod -aG uinput` 
sg uinput

I tried to update this project. Since 2.2.0, upstream has switched from gtk to electron, and, as a result is now using npm. The source tree with node packages has grown to over 1 GB and build times are very long on my pc. For now I can't do anything for this project, you are better off with a prebuilt version from GitHub -

Is there a way to get this package updated?

@WhyNotHugo You need to have rsvg installed. Install rsvg, then run gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache, and it should be fixed.

Doesn't work for me:

➜ emoji-keyboard
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/emoji-keyboard", line 22, in <module>
    shared.emoji = egtk.Emoji()
  File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/emoji_keyboard/", line 123, in __init__
    model = self.load_emoji()
  File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/emoji_keyboard/", line 170, in load_emoji
    pixbuf = GdkPixbuf.Pixbuf.new_from_file_at_scale(

Any hints on this?

mony’s PKGBUILD paste expired so I rebuilt it:

Version 2.3.0 You can use this pkgbuild and patch

PKGBUILD: patch:

put them together as PKGBUILD and session.patch in the same dir then run makepkg

emoji-keyboard seems to have had a couple of bad releases, needing patching before it can build. There is an orphan-request that has been submitted, and if anyone would like to carry on handling these releases, please do. I guess you should contact me then, so I can add you as maintainer?

I built the 2.3.0, no wayland support
