In order to support emoji on Linux, we will be using Noto Color Emoji font. The script is simple:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype
sudo unzip -d /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/noto
sudo rm /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/noto/LICENSE_OFL.txt
sudo apt-get remove ttf-ancient-fonts-symbola fonts-symbola
sudo chmod 644 /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/noto/NotoColorEmoji.ttf
fc-cache -f -v

Or using gist script:

curl | bash

This script uses apt-get packet management utility, please update it in order to run on your system.
