I am using the community edition of Manjaro with the i3wm. Every time I open slack, it asks me for the password of my computer. Anyone knows why?

Honestly not sure why, but Today phone calls and desktop sharing is working for me... Not sure if a logout or reboot was required after 1st install (I shut the laptop down last night)...

Just in case:

% ldd /usr/bin/slack ... => not found ... => not found ...

Not sure if that has anything to do with the disability to receive/make calls

Hello, the phone calls are not working for me, however my co-workers are telling me, on ubuntu is works fine. So I'm wondering why this AUR package doesn't allow me to use phone calls. Is there a missing dependency not requested either as optional?

Adding that prefix (XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity) to the .desktop command field didn't stick until a reboot, but it worked, thank you.

@MirandaStreeter I have the same problem. I fix it following this :

The notification icon is too large (the old one too) so the "red point" notification on slack's icon wasn't displayed

Since the latest update (3.3.7-1) with their logo change, the tray icon in my KDE/Plasma looks to be glitched out. It looks entirely white with a black plus sign covering the entire thing.

My libappindicator is up to date, and no other icons looks to be effected. I'm not entirely sure what's causing this. Trying to troubleshoot to no avail. Anyone else facing this issue?

Everything else about Slack is working just fine.

@1ouis with 3.3.4-1 it's all fixed for me even with gpu acceleration enabled.

I'm seeing slack coredumps when my screen goes into suspend and slack is in a different workspace on i3wm/x11.

You can reproduce using xset dpms force suspend while viewing another workspace.

alias slack='slack --disable-gpu' works for now I guess.

@christianmtr I have same problem as you with all electron apps. Seems that electron doesn't work well in wayland and have several screen issues (flickers, black windows, etc), the best workaround is use X11.

UPDATE: Try adding --disable-gpu as option in command line. Maybe this bug is related:
