I've installed Telegram and I've the folder "tsetup.1.3.10", where executable files reside, into Download folder.

I don't want my programs in Download folder, so I moved they in /opt folder. But, after that, I can't find Telegram from launcher search.

I added '/opt/' in $PATH defined in /etc/profile, but nothing!

    So what is the full path of your binary, and what does $PATH currently contain? Note that subdirectories from $PATH will not be scanned for binaries. – undercat Feb 2 at 15:56
  • My binary file's path: /opt/Telegram/Telegram PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games:/opt"(in /etc/profile) – Jeromy Feb 3 at 10:52
  • What "launcher search"? – 炸鱼薯条德里克 May 5 at 14:10
  • Maybe leave a symlink to executable in Downloads pointing to whats in /opt – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy May 5 at 17:14
