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

- sorry to put this on top, but many users flag this package as outdated due to icons checksums.
The checksums I do provide are the one of the pictures I downloaded and checked-
If icon checksums fail, delete icon files and re-run makepkg.

- the executable creates a custom, usually malformed, launcher, which is located at
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So, reporting the outdated package helps me, comments asking for updates ASAP...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.

- Feel free to report packaging bugs here in the comments or at my PKGBUILD repository:
If your issue is application-related, please report it upstream:

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

Installing the optional dependency libappindicator-gtk3 seems to provide a working tray-icon on Wayland (GTK3-based environment of course), no need to change the launcher.

@levitsky not really a need to. Not really having that many holidays.

The package is outdated for two weeks now. Maybe you could add a co-maintainer at least for simple stuff like version bumps. I, for example, would probably be able to do that on most days.

If you want latest version, try it. It's works for me.

I replaced current strings in PKGBUILD:
(line 6)


(line 41, delete/comment with "#" all sha256..%blabla%
sorry that i don't understand how to generate sha256sums and use just mkpkg -g
and generate only md5sums)

After 2 months without break (thanks exams) from university, I am on holiday, so please wait for the update. I will be back home next week and update the packages.

@fightcookie thank you indeed for the suggestion. That would make sure people read the proper info.

Plexcon commented on 2017-07-31 06:38

update v.1.1.18, please

fightcookie commented on 2017-07-30 23:04

It would be extremely useful to have the explanation as to why we need to remove the created launcher .desktop file in the post install comments!
The other infos from the pinned comment are also really helpful and could benefit more people if they were in the post install section.

Thanks in advance! :)
