If you are having issues with slow load time, and emoji search hanging on a single character (when typing 'too slowly'), I resolved this problem by finding and removing orphaned, duplicate fonts in /usr/share/fonts/noto-color-emoji/. (The noto-fonts-emoji package presently installs to /usr/share/fonts/noto/. Do a system search with mlocate for NotoColorEmoji.ttf.)

@nonZero Since Python 3.12 is live in Arch's core repo, you'll have to rebuild any AUR packages depending on Python. For different strategies to do so, see https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/1ceq621/python_update_to_312_a_reminder/

To specifically only rebuild this dependency of emote, you can run paru -S --asdeps --rebuild python-manimpango.

@lkrms: No idea what's going on with Pipenv here, but upstream uses Meson. Improved PKGBUILD

When I try to build the package as is, using makepkg -s -i I get this:

==> Starting package()...

However, I can fix that with this change:

   # Start automatically by default

Has anyone else run into that problem? Should the PKGBUILD maybe be changed to this (seemingly) more modern invocation of pip install?

@ZimbiX

Yep, that works. Thank you.

@FernandoBasso See the comment from @vstuart. But commenting out the import is all that's required now.

I get an error about missing minipango:

  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/emote/__init__.py", line 6, in <module>
    import manimpango
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'manimpango'

Tried rebuilding and reinstalling, but to no avail. Any ideas?

All good and no worries! Pretty funny that the emoji reference CSV got too big.

Thanks for your help
