https://web.telegram.org redirects me to https://web.telegram.org/k/ (sometimes its a different character, like /z/ ) and all I see is a complete empty window. I disabled uBlockOrigin on the site and allowed all scripts in eMatrix.
The html code it loads is this:

The F12 / Developer Tools Web Console tells me in debug this:

Code: Select all

[Sources]
The page has no sources
In Inspect/Rules it gives me two warnings

Code: Select all

-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
-moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
Other than these I see no obvious error in Developer Tools.

Edit
My system: x86-64 Linux based on Slackware 15.0.

Not a fix... but as an alternative the Telegram Desktop version works well on Win 7 & 10: https://desktop.telegram.org/ :)

I would expect a standalone desktop client to be available for Linuxes also?

There certainly is. I've been using it for a long time.

Off-topic:
Quite a shame for a centralized program that boasts to love open sourceness and all to support whatever Chromium-only behaviour instead of one that works everywhere like pretty much every Matrix web client, WhatsApp web and even Discord(even though the latter always had a lackluster web client
You can try https://web.telegram.org/?legacy=1 , can't try to login here but it not being a blank screen is a good sign. Not sure why this one became legacy

I was looking into installing it via flatpak - but https://flatpak.org/setup/ gives me a long list of OS to choose from for the Quick Setup - but not my OS, Slackware.
What do I do to install Telegram flatpak for Slackware 15 x86-64?
