What is the best way to install Telegram on Linux? Official Telegram link or Ubuntu snap app? Not sure what the difference is…
The best way is by Flatpak format. The official repositories are usually a step behind the actual release. You may need to take some steps to enable flatpaks but they will stay up to date versus other methods.
Thank you @DaleGribble! I’m a total Linux beginner. How do I install / run the instructions, not sure where the terminal is?
Something with pictures to match up what you see. Should get you going.
Thanks so much @DaleGribble, very helpful
Is this the best /easiest way for newbies to add on for Cinnamon users.
Yes even the same commands would work, as Mint is based of Ubuntu.
Thanks! Still trying to figure this out little by little. I appreciate everyone’s help and especially their patience with us newbies. Have a wonderful day
Hi everyone - fellow newbie here!
With my new Linux computer my instinct was to find
an app for Telegram. Instead I decided to do it another way.
With the Brave browser I went to the Telegram.org website.
I clicked ‘apps’ at the top. Then I scrolled down to Web apps,
and I selected the first option ‘Telegram WebZ’. Its nice so I
bookmarked it. If you’re looking for a desktop Telegram this
might be for you too.
Thanks! As soon as I get brave loaded I will look at this. I appreciate the info. Have a great day
Just wanted to give you a huge thank you, I just got Telegram installed the way you suggested and it was the easiest thing I have done so far. I really appreciate everybody’s helpfulness. Now on to the next step to add more programs, Proton, VPN etc,.
