Easy install (Debian)

Hhhmmm... This might be easy, but now I am on a old version. I'll revert back to doing this from source.

sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list

Append the following two lines at the end.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/noobslab/apps/ubuntu trusty main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/noobslab/apps/ubuntu trusty main

Then execute:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys F59EAE4D
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install telegram-desktop

Old school install

cd ~/Downloads
wget https://telegram.org/dl/desktop/linux/tsetup.tar -O tsetup.tar.xz 

or

wget https://updates.tdesktop.com/tlinux/tsetup.1.1.19.tar.xz -O tsetup.tar.xz 
aunpack tsetup.tar.xz 
sudo mv Telegram /opt/telegram
sudo ln -sf /opt/telegram/Telegram /usr/bin/telegram
