i guess i can live without color emojis lol

really, i dont care about displaying emojis at all, i just wanted dwm
not crashing because of some :).

i agree that having dwm depend on some huge graphics lib is not desirable.

can anyone think of a way to catch and ignore teh error at least? i
managed to catch it on xerror(), and it prevented dwm from exiting,
but it remained unusable.

or perhaps substitute color emojis with black and white ones on teh fly?


PS: im X11 noob
