Build instructions for GYP/CMake under Ubuntu 14.04

Prepare folder

Choose an empty folder for the future build, for example /home/user/TBuild. It will be named BuildPath in the rest of this document.

Obtain your API credentials

You will require api_id and api_hash to access the Telegram API servers. To learn how to obtain them click here.

Install software and required packages

You will need GCC 7.2 and CMake 3.2 installed. To install them and all the required dependencies run

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:george-edison55/cmake-3.x
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gcc-7 g++-7 cmake
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-7 60
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-7 60
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:george-edison55/cmake-3.x

sudo apt-get install git libexif-dev liblzma-dev libz-dev libssl-dev libappindicator-dev libunity-dev libicu-dev libdee-dev libdrm-dev dh-autoreconf autoconf automake build-essential libass-dev libfreetype6-dev libgpac-dev libsdl1.2-dev libtheora-dev libtool libva-dev libvdpau-dev libvorbis-dev libxcb1-dev libxcb-image0-dev libxcb-shm0-dev libxcb-xfixes0-dev libxcb-keysyms1-dev libxcb-icccm4-dev libxcb-render-util0-dev libxcb-util0-dev libxrender-dev libasound-dev libpulse-dev libxcb-sync0-dev libxcb-randr0-dev libx11-xcb-dev libffi-dev libncurses5-dev pkg-config texi2html zlib1g-dev yasm cmake xutils-dev bison python-xcbgen

You can set the multithreaded make parameter by running

MAKE_THREADS_CNT=-j8

Building the project

Go to BuildPath/tdesktop/Telegram and run (using your api_id and api_hash)

gyp/refresh.sh --api-id YOUR_API_ID --api-hash YOUR_API_HASH

To make Debug version go to BuildPath/tdesktop/out/Debug and run

make $MAKE_THREADS_CNT

To make Release version go to BuildPath/tdesktop/out/Release and run

make $MAKE_THREADS_CNT

You can debug your builds from Qt Creator, just open CMakeLists.txt from BuildPath/tdesktop/out/Debug and launch with debug.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
