@valandil, @shioyama - I'm experiencing the same issue. Let me know if you solve it.

@shioyama If you figure this out, send me a message. I have the same issue. The notifications seem to be the issue.

Never mind, it's not a slack issue.

I'm noticing that when I get an audio notification (knock-knock) slack seems to freeze for me, and I have to kill it and restart. Anyone else having this issue?

@maximbaz The original package provided by Slack have '--disable-gpu' flag, that is the reason why is set here. Anyway if you want change it, you can copy the desktop file in your ~/.local/share/applications and make the changes that you need.

Hello, I noticed that the flag '--disable-gpu' is used, what is the reason to have it? I just tried to remove the flag, and everything runs so much smoother! Scrolling, redrawal of Ctrl+K popup, ... Could you consider removing the flag from the *.desktop file?

@epidings the main problem with this is that if the 'hunspell-en' is not installed, slack desktop doesn't run :(

epidings commented on 2017-08-05 12:14

I would suggest to make dependency 'hunspell-en' optional.

Some people prefer to have only one variant of the English dictionary (like 'hunspell-en_GB') or no English dictionary at all.

@smstromb I'm having the same issue. Infinite spinner when trying to make or connect to calls.

I'm not able to get debug logging to work either.

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ /usr/bin/slack

did not get slack voice calls to work for me. I still get an infinite loading spinner.
