Telegram Desktop is the official client for Telegram Messenger. It's also open-source. The source code is available on Github. We'll be installing Telegram Desktop from the official repository of Arch Linux on Arch-based distros. There is a community package called telegram-desktop that pretty much automates the installation process for us.


Install telegram-desktop from the official repository:

  • Using pacman

    $ sudo pacman -S telegram-desktop
  • Using yay

    $ yay -S telegram-desktop


Use the desktop shortcut to open Telegram Desktop or by shell:

$ telegram-desktop

Then here you go:

Telegram Desktop
