NOTICE: if one of your comment fall back in one of this entries, I will act without replying here in comment. If you have issues for that, write a comment down here and I might reply you. If the answer to a problem is here, though, don't expect any soon, as I believe you will read this first.

So, a few considerations to sum up most important stuff (FAQ-alike):

  • sorry to put this on top, but many users flag this package as outdated due to icons checksums.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.

  • This package tracks the stable releases; for the development version, check telegram-desktop-bin-dev. Every time this package will be marked as outdated because of a development release, it will just be unflagged.

  • The package is updated whenever the built binary is online AND I have time. So, reporting the outdated package HIGHLY helps me (it reminds me to do it), comments asking for updates ASAP...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.

@ilya-fedin yes, it was using the "unity launcher counter". I've deleted the telegram-related desktop file as you said and also restarted the system. But the problem exists. thank you anyway :))

@a_0vi taskbar icon counter, unlike tray one, is not a part of icon, but is set via a dbus protocol, so it doesn't depend on icon theme. Check that ~/.local/share/TelegramDesktop/log.txt has "Using Unity launcher counter", if it has, try to remove telegram-related desktop files from ~/.local/share/applications, that will help most likely

@ilya-fedin thank you for your suggestion. But I noticed after shifting between several icon packs, the badge indicator of the taskbar icon is also not working. I am currently using the Papirus icon pack, but when I changed it to my default or previous icon pack, the badge still wasn't visible.

@a_0vi I suggest to forget about tray counter and use taskbar counter instead

@ilya-fedin thank you very much, it worked for the badge. But Most of my icons were not visible, which might be my theme problem. But thank you anyways. (if possible, anyone can suggest me another sourcefull icon pack where the system tray has a badge counter)

@ilya-fedin thank you for your feedback. I didn't know that.

Currently, I am using Manjaro KDE with "Breeze Dark" icon pack, can you suggest me an icon pack where the badge will be shown in the system tray?

Thank you again.

ilya-fedin commented on 2021-05-29 09:28

@a_0vi it's not sources, it depends on your system icon theme. tdesktop won't show the counter if your icon theme provides monochrome icon with its own indicator.

first of all, i had some unicode font(bengali) related issues with other sources of telegram. But this one fixed it all.

Is there any way to add the badge counter in the system tray icon? Currently It just shows a blue dot if there are new messages. Other sources has this feature where you can also see the number of unread messages.

There are a major difference due to Qt patches used in upstream build: it has shadows with custom titlebar in native Wayland mode, while Arch's build doesn't have them in native Wayland mode.
