I am confused why we would need this. Telegram already has a desktop file that is installed.

@jtojnar that wasn't the case for me at least. After installing tdesktop via home-manager, my drun launcher wasn't picking up a desktop item for Telegram. I'll investigate if it wasn't a one off issue however (or a configuration issue), and close this PR if it's necessary

Update: After installing though nixOS's default configuration, tdesktop's entry file exists and is available to drun launchers... I'll continue debugging this and see what the correct fix is.
