This package needs to build its own patched Qt5 version, so it can take a lot of time depending on your CPU. It also needs need around 5 GiB of free space, so it should be built in a hard disk backed partition instead of /tmp. Any complaints regarding this will be ignored.

- Download built packages here:
- Download official built binaries from
- Build telegram-desktop-bin, which will create a package from official binaries.
- Build telegram-desktop-systemqt, which uses system Qt, but it is experimental.

@Ravenman I don't know why python is not getting your locale settings. Anyway, I think it is simpler to patch to use always UTF-8. Please, try the updated PKGBUILD.

@eduardosm Here is the output:

[user@localhost ~]$ python -c 'import sys; print(sys.getdefaultencoding())'
[user@localhost ~]$ python -c 'import locale; print(locale.getlocale())'
(None, None)
[user@localhost ~]$

@Ravenman What is the output of
python -c 'import sys; print(sys.getdefaultencoding())'
python -c 'import locale; print(locale.getlocale())'

Should we maybe add these locale overrides to the PKGBUILD then?

Ravenman commented on 2017-06-19 23:12

@eduardosm This is my locale settings:

[user@localhost ~]$ locale
[user@localhost ~]$

@Ravenman What are your locale settings? Using an UTF-8 locale and enabling it in /etc/locale.gen (and running locale-gen in case you modify the file) should work.

Somebody can help me, please?
