Facebook client with Emoji support

There’s now a new Linux app which brings Facebook client on your Desktop with emoji support. It’s called Kawaii Emoji Messenger.

Kawaii Emoji Messenger is a multiplatform Facebook client based on the idea of bringing emoji on desktop.
Through Kawaii Emoji Messenger you can use a full set of emoji in you Facebook conversations and comments in the easiest way.

Facebook does not allow emoji on its web version for browsers. So this app shows you a mobile version of Facebook.

Install Kawaii Emoji Messenger

NOTE: Kawaii Emoji Messenger is currently in its beta stage so you may find it a little unstable and incomplete.

I’ve made this tool into PPA to make it easy to install. The PPA supports Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 12.10, Linux Mint and other derivatives.

To install it, press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal and run commands below one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install kawaiiemojimessenger

Once installed, open it from Unity Dash or Menu.

If you’d like to build it from source code, run commands below one by one within the source folder:

mkdir build
cd build
sudo make install

This tutorial is going to show you a simple and stylish Facebook browser for your PC. This app provides native Facebook experience in a Facebook styled window plus a system tray icon for providing notifications. This app doesn’t disturbs you by popping out notifications, but it notifies you silently by changing the system tray icon color.

This app uses a simple approach for delivering notifications in the system tray. It reads the number of notifications, messages and friend requests directly from the facebook page, using Javascript calls, without using any components from Facebook SDK.

Install Facebook Desktop App:

This app works on Windows, Mac and Ubuntu (64-bit only). I’ve tested on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring, unfortunately the indicator applet didn’t work for Unity Desktop.
