Building via qmake

NB These are outdated, please refer to Building using GYP/CMake instructions.

The following commands assume the following environment variables are set:

  • $srcdir: The directory into which the source has been downloaded and unpacked.
  • _qtver: The Qt version being used (eg: 5.6.2).
  • $pkgdir: The directory into which installable files are places. This is / for local installations, or can be different directory when preparing a redistributable package.

Either set them accordingly, or replace them in the below commands as desired.

The following sources should be downloaded and unpacked into $srcdir:

  • This repository (either master or a specific tag).
  • git clone git://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git
  • git clone git+https://chromium.googlesource.com/breakpad/breakpad breakpad
  • git clone git+https://chromium.googlesource.com/linux-syscall-support breakpad-lss
  • telegramdesktop.desktop (The intention is to include this file inside the source package at some point): https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/plain/telegramdesktop.desktop?h=telegram-desktop
  • tg.protocol: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/plain/tg.protocol?h=telegram-desktop

Preparation

cd "$srcdir/tdesktop"

mkdir -p "$srcdir/Libraries"

local qt_patch_file="$srcdir/tdesktop/Telegram/Patches/qtbase_${_qtver//./_}.diff"
local qt_dir="$srcdir/Libraries/qt${_qtver//./_}"
if [ "$qt_patch_file" -nt "$qt_dir" ]; then
  rm -rf "$qt_dir"
  git clone git://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git
  cd "$qt_dir"
  git checkout 5.6
  perl init-repository --module-subset=qtbase,qtimageformats
  git checkout v$_qtver
  cd qtimageformats
  git checkout v$_qtver
  cd ../qtbase
  git checkout v$_qtver
  git apply "$qt_patch_file"
fi

if [ ! -h "$srcdir/Libraries/breakpad" ]; then
  ln -s "$srcdir/breakpad" "$srcdir/Libraries/breakpad"
  ln -s "$srcdir/breakpad-lss" "$srcdir/Libraries/breakpad/src/third_party/lss"
fi

sed -i 's/CUSTOM_API_ID//g' "$srcdir/tdesktop/Telegram/Telegram.pro"

(
  echo "DEFINES += TDESKTOP_DISABLE_AUTOUPDATE"
  echo "DEFINES += TDESKTOP_DISABLE_REGISTER_CUSTOM_SCHEME"
) >> "$srcdir/tdesktop/Telegram/Telegram.pro"
