Want apple emoji to be replaced with noto

Hello Garuda users.

I want apple emoji but when I try installing using Octopi

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing noto-fonts-emoji breaks dependency 'noto-fonts-emoji' required by noto-color-emoji-fontconfig
Press any key to continue...```

Hi there, welcome.
Not clear to me what you're trying to achieve, I guess the title should be that you want noto to be replaced with apple emoji. But.. which package exactly? You copied only the error part of your transactions. Not to mention that the garuda-inxi is missing.
As far as I can say, this is going to be a bit risky because (e.g.) ttf-apple-emoji conflicts with noto-fonts-emoji (that's why it's being removed), which is required by noto-color-emoji-fontconfig. The problem is that the latter is required by at least garuda-common-settings (which of course shouldn't be touched).
For sure, you can first remove noto-fonts-emoji without touching noto-color-emoji-fontconfig with

sudo pacman -Rdd noto-fonts-emoji

and then install the new package, but then I don't know if noto is used anywhere else in the system. In the worst case, you'll have to reinstall it and remove the apple package...
