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 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.

@hecsa This might be related with your issue:
Try to update to latest google-breakpad-git.

That's right, I'm getting this error when upgrading:

Any ideas about how to solve it?

@Plexcon It fails while building google-breakpad-git, you should report there.

@eduardosm, Ok, I see, thanks! base-devel packages are almost installed on my system, except pkg-config, it's weird.

@goldielin pkg-config is part of base-devel, so it is assumed that every user that tries to build a package has already installed it, without needing to add it to makedepends.

Hey, I just found that the telegram-desktop v1.1.19 implied a additional need
of a dependency "pkg-config", or it will be built failed during the configure
step of qtbase, fail log is at the next paragraph. It said that xkbcommon or
xkbcommon-x11 was not found, but, actually, the "libxkbcommon-x11" package
already specified in the "depends" of the PKGBUILD build script, and it had
been installed on my system. However, after installing pkg-config
now the telegram-desktop v1.1.19 can be built successfully. I don't kown why
pkg-config was not installed on my system.

$ yaourt -S telegram-desktop

checking for xcb-glx... yes.
checking for xcb-xlib... yes.
checking for GBM... no.
checking for LinuxFB... yes.
checking for KMS... no.
checking for Mir client... no.
xkbcommon support cannot be enabled because either xkbcommon or
xkbcommon-x11 >= 0.4.1 was not found via pkg-config!
Use of pkg-config is not enabled, maybe you want to pass -pkg-config?
Turn on verbose messaging (-v) to ./configure to see the final report.
If you believe this message is in error you may use the continue
switch (-continue) to ./configure to continue.
