    hi
    after entering this command wget https://updates.tdesktop.com/tlinux/tsetup.0.7.23.tar.xz
    it says:ERROR: Certificate verification error for updates.tdesktop.com: self signed certificate in certificate chain
    To connect to updates.tdesktop.com insecurely, use `–no-check-certificate’.
    Unable to establish SSL connection.

      @Amidreza,

      It’s because the link has https protocol, try to use following command to download the file.

      # wget –no-check-certificate https://updates.tdesktop.com/tlinux/tsetup.0.7.23.tar.xz
      
  6. Add to /etc/apt/sources.list:
    deb http://mirror.yandex.ru/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
    and run
    # apt-get -t testing install libc6-dev
    for GLIBC 2.19-22

    It would be great if they could implement secret chats as well in the desktop version.
    P.S.: I discovered by chance today this nice website! Congrats guys :D
