Telegram on Raspberry Pi

Navigate to the folder tg


The first time we start telegram we must enter the phone number, including land code (for Italy is +39).

Now we are ready to use telegram, if you send a message from your smartphone you can see it on terminal.

msg Text – sends message to this peer fwd – forward message to user. You can see message numbers starting client with -N chat_with_peer starts one on one chat session with this peer. /exit or /quit to end this mode. add_contact – tries to add contact to contact-list by phone rename_contact – tries to rename contact. If you have another device it will be a fight mark_read – mark read all received messages with peer delete_msg – deletes message (not completly, though) restore_msg – restores delete message. Impossible for secret chats. Only possible short time (one hour, I think) after deletion

Photo should be square, or server will cut biggest central square part

Default limit = 40 dialog_list – prints info about your dialogs contact_list – prints info about users in your contact list suggested_contacts – print info about contacts, you have max common friends stats – just for debugging show_license – prints contents of GPLv2 help – prints this help
