Please, remove from PKGBUILD line make -j17 the option -j17. First of, it gonna eat up user's RAM because that takes a lot of memory. I just had a lock up because of this. Second, users usually set the -jX number they prefer inside MAKEFLAGS in their /etc/makepkg.conf.

(ideally one wouldn't use make at all in preference of modern ninja since cmake does support such generator. But tdesktop seems to have something broken in their cmake configuration, and -GNinja option to cmake makes cmake configuration fail)

It appears that tdesktop-ffmpeg-fix-convertFromARGB32PM.patch and tdesktop-rlottie-static-qt.patch are no longer available

Current tdesktop.patch (just used it to build version 1.7.0.r7.g63fc55263)

Note: you should replace sha256 for this file in PKGBUILD with 'SKIP'

Also owned the package and fixed the checksum, should work without manual fixes now

I solved the problem by the following steps: 1. Run makepkg to apply existing successful patches. 2. Edit Telegram/SourceFiles/core/launcher.cpp according to the tdesktop.patch: add 3 lines in Launcher::exec() and change a macro from #ifndef OS_MAC_OLD to #if !defined(Q_OS_MAC) && QT_VERSION >= QT_VERSION_CHECK(5, 6, 0). 3. Generate the correct patch by git diff > tdesktop.patch and replace the old one with this, and editing the sha256sums accordingly.

@bakatrouble: that hunk also results in build failure, or I'm not editing tdesktop.patch correctly.

To fix the tdesktop.patch file to work with current source code replace the second chunk (for Telegram/SourceFiles/core/launcher.cpp) with following snippet:

--- a/Telegram/SourceFiles/core/launcher.cpp
+++ b/Telegram/SourceFiles/core/launcher.cpp

I've disowned the package because I don't have enough time to prepare and maintain proper patches. Further reliance on those from the official repository, in the long run, won't work.

If someone has enough time and determination, I encourage to play with the package ;)
