Telegram on Korora 25 Cinnamon
Has anyone used the Telegram desktop client on Korora 25 Cinnamon?
I downloaded it
Extracted the archive
And I can execute it and use it. But it did not automatically setup a launcher link. Other have reported that it did so on Fedora with Gnome 3 and KDE as well as Ubuntu.
Just symlink it in one of your PATH folder.
I eneded up making a Telegram.desktop file.
Really I was mostly annoyed that it does it natively on Fedora 25, but not here.
Moved Telegram folder to /opt and then edited (created)
[Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Name=Telegram Exec=/opt/Telegram/Telegram Icon=/opt/Telegram/telegram128.png Type=Application Categories=Network;
I had to go download
telegram128.pngseparately. Also annoying.
Google gave me this site to get it. http://deshack.net/install-telegram-for-linux-as-an-application/
right click and save if you want it yourself.
