Please, don't ask for add lsb-release as dependency. In Arch Linux this package is not needed to run Slack Desktop.

And before asking for any other dependency as make or patch or whatever, please read the wiki.

unfortunately I confirm that 4.34.120 breaks again screen sharing :(

Arch on EndeavourOS

Wayland Gnome 44.4

I contacted Slack's support, they are aware of the problem.

Updating to 4.34.120 "borked" screen share again, options being shown are Xwayland windows and screens are blacked out.

My desktop file contains the following Exec line: Exec=/usr/bin/slack --enable-features=WaylandWindowDecorations,WebRTCPipeWireCapturer --ozone-platform-hint=auto -s %U. Currently on sway 1.8.1.

Downgrading to 4.34.115 gets rid of the issue :)

I can confirm that 4.34.115 finally fixed the screencast issue, thanks to the maintainer ogarcia for the quick response.

The only "problem" is that i need to select 2 times the screen on sharing select but, after that, all works flawlessly.

Niiiiiice 4.34.115 finally indeed fixed screen sharing on my Wayland Arch.

Based on official changelog they fixed the screencast issue on 4.34.115 released on September 5, 2023:

Linux users on Wayland noticed that screensharing in huddles would crash the app as soon as sharing ended. No good deed goes unpunished, they say. We're working to change that to "No bad bug goes unfixed." Please resume sharing with impunity.

4.33.90 is still crashing on screenshare for me too (sway, wlroots)

4.33.84 is still crashing for me on screenshare attempts (wayland). Gonna stay longer on 4.29.149 :-(

Just wanted to say thank you. We appreciate the most likely unpaid job you're doing to keep this up to date.

@grandchild That's moot if you can't actually log in though! (See comments on that package.)

@OJFord: Actually, since electron 25.3.0 is already in the official packages, slack-electron works beautifully with screenshare :D 🎉

It still has the issues described in the PR linked below (having to select screens/windows ~4 times, until screenshare actually starts, but it works at least).
