So, a few considerations to sum up most important stuff (FAQ kind of):

- the executable creates a custom launcher, which is located at
$HOME/.local/share/applications/telegramdesktop.desktop
so, you can either remove it or make it unreadable (kind of) with
chattr +a $HOME/.local/share/applications/telegramdesktop.desktop
I personally suggest the second one. (thanks to @DragonX256, @lybin and @evilgnome for pointing this out)

- this pre-built binary has no Wayland support. So, for working tray-icon, change the launcher using
env GDK_BACKEND=x11 telegram
as executable. (Thanks @nebulon for the suggestion)
My suggestion is to copy the launcher inside the package in ".local/share/applications" and tweak your user copy.
If you really want Wayland support, you can use the AUR package 'telegram-desktop'.

- The package is updated whenever the built binary is online AND I have time.
So, reporting the outdated package helps me, comments asking for updates ASAP... not really.

I will add useful stuff to this comment when I notice it, with also proper credits.

The tray icon is missing when running on gnome3 wayland.
To workaround that the .desktop file should run telegram with

GDK_BACKEND=x11 telegram

as suggested in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1389875

telegram.png and telegramdesktop.desktop are installed with mode 755 (lines 69 and 70). Shouldn't it be 644?

ItachiSan commented on 2017-02-02 16:25

The bin is still not out for 1.0.6, so I've to wait for it.

I don't know why, but this program loses it's config everytime i close it (phone number, language and theme). Any idea about how to solve this?

@Simorgh Delete original launcher which was created after first launch by executing:

rm ~/.local/share/applications/telegramdesktop.desktop

and all should work after that.

Thank you for maintaining this application @ItachiSan

Since the last update, upon starting/executing the app by clicking on the provided icon in the whisker menu, I get a popup message:

Failed to execute command "-- %u".
Failed to execute child process "--" (No such file or directory)

Where can I go to change the shortcut?!?

Thank you in advance

rm -rf ~/.cache/pacaur/telegram-desktop-bin/

Rerun the AUR upgrade with pacaur and it redownloads the correct icon set, which passes the validity check

@malevolent
The check is only failing for the icons, isn't it?
