Unicode Emojis for Gajim

This is a set of unicode emojis (or emoticons) for Gajim, an XMPP client. It makes Gajim display emojis sent by Android or Apple devices nicely and enables Gajim users to themselves send Unicode emojis.

It is based on EmojiOne with an automatically generated and only slightly modified index file attached to it so that Gajim can handle the icons correctly. I manually added all ASCII codes the original “static“ emoticon pack that comes with Gajim supports (and a few more), but will gladly accept patches with more such additions.


Either download the ZIP or use git to clone the repository to the correct location (see below), go to the preferences of Gajim and select the newly appeared emoticon pack. The correct folders are:

  • Linux: $HOME/.local/share/gajim/emoticons/
  • Windows Vista/7/8/10: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Gajim\Emoticons\


The emoji art itself is licensed by EmojiOne under CC-BY 4.0. The index file and generation script hardly count as an intellectual creation, but if needed, they are licensed under CC0.
