How can I create my own emoji in Linux Mint, from a JPG or PNG image?

How can I create my own emoji in Linux Mint, from a JPG or PNG image?
And will I be able to use my personalized emoji in Facebook, etc?
Is there any software, or at least an online converter?

Re: What is downloading?

Greetings one and all. Help needed, if possible. I only noticed the following, as I was concerned that I am "losing space" on my HDD. I would normally have around 70 to 80 GB free space. Now it is around 30 GB. I removed a few Timeshift backups (?) hoping I would recover some space. This ...

Re: Faxing from computer (Brother MFC printer)

Hi! I'm trying to send a fax from my computer (Linux 18.3) using a Brother MFC-L2740DW print/scan/fax machine. On Windows/Mac, there is a way to add a device to the printers menu so that one can send a fax directly from their computer. However, Brother seems to have no support for this feature on L...

Re: I need HELP building the ultimate multiboot LINUX ONLY machine (PC)

@pbear ALL of the installed distros will share the same ext4 " /home " mounted partition, its size being the remainder of space on the 2TB SSD. Overlooked this the first time around. Do you realize the config files run in the 0.5 to 1.5 GB range? Pretty small, by modern standards. IMHO, s...

@arvy Will I need to create a separate "/boot" partition for any or all distros? Where and how should I install the BOOTLOADER for each and every distro during its install process? I think you may be aiming for something very similar to my own main system's set-up which uses "old fas...
