@earch theoretically it shouldn't generate its own desktop file.

The reason why I package a desktop file is because I can guarantee people will be able to start the application, just that.

EDIT 1: I looked through the code and it seems the desktop file is generated if you select the built in updater option.


You probably want to disable that and flag the package here when it is not updated.

Why do we create /usr/share/applications/telegramdesktop.desktop if Telegram creates a .desktop file on its own, when launching it?

For me it's there: .local/share/applications/org.telegram.desktop._f79d601e26a782fd149b3ffb098aae9f.desktop

So I end up with two Desktop Entries in my launcher. Btw they do differ, slightly.

Please remove replaces directive, in accordance with AUR submission guidelines.

Hi @MarsSeed,

All has been done :) See:

Thanks for the detailed guide! Given how busy I am recently, it helped a lot.

You will need to add your co-maintainer to the new package, they won't get added automatically.

It's not that complicated actually.

First you create and submit a new telegram-desktop-dev-bin package from your existing local repo.

You can do it by renaming the pkgname in your PKGBUILD, refreshing the .SRCINFO, committing these edits, and then changing the git repo's remote URL and pushing it to AUR.

git remote set-url origin ssh://
git push origin master

Then you send an AUR package merge request from the old package via the 'Submit Request' link, choosing type 'Merge', and entering the name of the new package. You can just mention in the comment that you renamed the package.

EDIT: removed the no longer existing link.

Hi @MarsSeed, I can do that however I am unsure on how to do it.

MarsSeed commented on 2023-07-27 12:18 (UTC)

Please rename this package to telegram-desktop-dev-bin to conform to AUR package naming rules.
