Incidentally, I also had been having Emoji issues for a long time now—only 
seeing those monochrome smiley faces for some characters, but mostly blank 
squares. By happy accident I recently discovered that in Konsole profile 
settings under Appearance→Advanced, there is an own option for an Emoji 
font, which in my case was set to “-1”. So I selected a proper font (the 
pre-installed Noto Color Emoji) and with that I got a full list of images 
from the sample text.🥳
