Comunicating from your Linux machine?

On slint we have telegram-cli and although receiving functions work I'm
not certain sending functions work yet.  It is a new slint package
having first lived in slackbuilds repository so may not have been built
properly this last time.  Other distributions may have better compiled
versions of telegram-cli available.  It's worth checking.  You will need
a cell phone and to provide your cell phone number to telegram-cli to
set up an account since for future logins you'll use your username and
the provided login code.  The login code is sent to your cell phone and
you enter it on the computer to finish setting up your account.
