How to install Telegram on Fedora using Flatpak

To install Telegram using Flatpak you have to add kderuntime.

flatpak --user remote-add kderuntime --from https://distribute.kde.org/kderuntime.flatpakrepo

Now you can install Telegram.

flatpak --user install --from https://jgrulich.fedorapeople.org/telegram/telegram.flatpakref

Just for an example, my installation process:

[[email protected] ~]$ flatpak --user install --from https://jgrulich.fedorapeople.org/telegram/telegram.flatpakref

You can also run Telegram from command line.

flatpak run org.telegram.desktop

Telegram - welcome screen

Telegram - tray icon

I don't know why but the Telegram icon is accessible after system restart, but it works ;-)

Telegram - Gnome applications
