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.

Version 4.23.0-1 does not allow me to login via Google SSO from the browser. Downgraded to 4.21 and it worked there.

@rgcv same here... but for me it never launches when I use the "Ozone Platform" options

@fardog appreciate the feedback. my solution was to downgrade it, 4.22 seems... decent enough, and I need screensharing in general to work on wayland, for one (daily driving sway).

@rgcv i can confirm the same unfortunately, segfault under wayland; works fine when running via xwayland though, so i'm just falling back to that for now. i don't have a fix, just a confirmation that you're not alone in the issue.

Electron packaging guidelines say that if packages comes with prebuilt Electron it should go to /opt

schard commented on 2021-12-21 12:38

@wooque No. Read the FHS.

wooque commented on 2021-12-21 12:20

Shouldn't AUR packages go to /opt, I noticed that all packages I installed are in /opt except Slack

@rgcv isn't the electron version bundled in this package?

rgcv commented on 2021-12-16 19:22

Consider using a downgraded version of electron (say electron 15, haven't had many issues with it). With the most recent version of electron (16 at time of writing), I am now only having issues if I enable the WebRTCPipeWireCapturer feature :\ Guess I can't have screensharing

yonson commented on 2021-12-16 17:36

I am also seeing the segmentation fault trying to run on wayland with 4.23.0
