@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 :(

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.

@sepf - I'm experiencing the same on both Slack and Skype (both Electron apps).

The GUI will (seemingly) randomly lock up during regular usage. Example: when clicking a button, something happens behind the scenes (a message is sent or a channel is switched) but there are no visual changes.

I'm on the latest version of slack-desktop with the latest kernel, and have not made any changes to the installation or configuration files.

@kolombo the package has not a install file and I will not add one to simply warn how to launch Slack, maxime considering that you can see it in desktop file.

Please add this to post install message
if you run slack from console please use next command to enable calls support
# LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ /usr/bin/slack --disable-gpu %U
