6. Observe the list of emoji being displayed
7. Select Click on any emoji you would like to input
8. Switch focus back to gedit window
9. Paste (CTRL+V)

Actual results:
The emoji are showing in black&white and also input is black&white

Expected results:
Emoji should appear in the list as color and also input should be color as well.

QE have verified bug #1582547 as it was intend to check if the same font has been added in RHEL7.6. And it got added, so we verified that.

I think cairo need to be compiled with rebased freetype to render the color emoji characters.

I just tried to re-compile cairo on RHEL 7.6 (2018-09-06),
and gedit show the color emoji characters correctly.

Comment 3 Peng Wu 2018-09-07 07:22:13 UTC
I think cairo need to be re-compiled with the current freetype to show the color emoji characters.

Comment 4 Peng Wu 2018-09-10 07:49:17 UTC
The freetype 2.8 has the FT_LOAD_COLOR macro defined, cairo need the FT_LOAD_COLOR macro to render color emoji characters.

Hi Tomas,

Thank you Kalev for the quick fix. Thanks Libor for the blocker.
