Bug Description

I tried starting the application from both my app launcher and a terminal. When I ran "telegram-desktop" in my terminal,the only thing it did was printing the following:

$ telegram-desktop
QEventLoop: Cannot be used without QApplication

(telegram-desktop:3625): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: 22:07:57.298: cannot register existing type 'GdkDisplayManager'

(telegram-desktop:3625): GLib-CRITICAL **: 22:07:57.298: g_once_init_leave: assertion 'result != 0' failed

(telegram-desktop:3625): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 22:07:57.298: g_object_new_with_properties: assertion 'G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed

It doesn't exit, and htop shows that it doesn't have any CPU use.

The snap version works fine.


Additional system information:

- VirtualBox VM
- 3D acceleration disabled
- i3-wm
