Remove symbola from default install
Closed, InvalidPublic


Hey! Having the package R842 installed on a fresh Solus install (I've tested GNOME & Budgie) causes some applications to use the symbola font as the emoji set. (Discord displaying raw characters for example.)
Symbola only provides monochrome emojis which looks pretty horrible. Uninstalling symbola makes emojis pretty again.
With symbola installed:

Without symbola installed:

That doesn't really make any sense seeing as font-symbola-ttf isn't a rundep of anything in the repo, it's strictly part of desktop.font, which isn't something we pre-install in the ISOs. You sure you didn't explicitly install this or the entire component?
