[Guide] Telegram - How to install Telegram on JingOS ARM

Hi all,
after installing Synaptic (how to → here) I saw Telegram-Desktop package has some related packages missing on my JingPad A1 (JingOS ARM). So I decided to find the best way to install it.

In my procedure I decided to use Snap APP, a common package system made by Canonical.
So, first of all, follow my guide on “How to install Snapd” (open it in a new page):

…And now, install Telegram:

sudo snap install telegram-desktop

If the Telegram icon doesn’t appear on desktop you can manually add it:

sudo cp /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/telegram-desktop_telegram-desktop.desktop /usr/share/applications/

Have a nice day!

Ciao @Maxximo88, thanks for the how-to. It works but the font size is way to small. I can’t read anything. And there is no setting to change that. Any idea?

I solved the problem, but I don’t really know how :grimacing:. I changed the language from English to German and then I suddenly was able to scale the settings. Maybe I was blind before or it wasn’t there. But chosing 200% solved my issue. Telegram looks now as it should be.
