      You know that Unicode is not only for filenames, right?

          I hereby gratefully accept this new moose emoji on behalf of all Canadians. :P

          On a more serious note... why were people trying to run KeePassXC under Wine when it's cross-platform and open-source?

            KeePassXC Portable​ if you look at the bug reports about it. Yes windows application on USB key to take with them to use in other systems.

            https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53176 Mind you KeePassXC still does not work right yet. Fixed one problem only to get to the next one.

              So just don't use them in filenames if you don't need that functionality. Other people like that they can have hair picks and eggplants in their filenames. It's really that simple.

                I've got a strip_emoji.py to make filenames from youtube-dl play nice with K3b if anyone needs it. (Turns out genisoimage doesn't like Astral/non-BMP code points... it's in good company with things like git gui.)

                    Is it really a problem of WINE? The app uses a feature of Windows, which is not present in Linux*:

                    Windows.Security.Credentials Namespace
                    Provides a common way to securely store and manage your passcodes, passphrases, and other identification information.​
                    As others noted the app is opensource and multiplatform. That also means you can add a special codepath in the Windows version when running in WINE on an OS not containing the secure place to store passwords.

                    *) WINE can't depend on incompatible keychains specific to some desktop environments. And others don't have any.
