Bold font seems to work for me. I didn't do anything special outside of pulling the latest PKGBUILD and rebuilding and installing.

After 4.0.0 update there is no bold font in app anymore. Is it an upstream bug?

Never mind, apparently I no longer can use Slack behind the corporate firewall at one of my client's locations. It works fine from home.

@ogarcia: yes, I uninstalled slack-desktop and removed the ~/.config/Slack directory. I re-installed the application but with the same results. I'm using KDE 5.16.3 by the way.

@lordchaos do you try removing the ~/.config/Slack directory and restarting? (take note that you lose your configuration)

Version 4 no longer works for me; I starts without error (I no longer see a splash screen though). I get an empty, white window with a menu on top.

Hi, I got a " not found" and was able to solve it with: sudo chmod 644 /usr/lib/slack/

It might be worth looking at.

You should have installed the base-devel group when building from AUR:

Missing patch in Dependencies PKGBUILD: line 25: patch: command not found

Looks like there is a bug fix in Xfwm that may address this:

And a workaround posted here (using xprop):

So we have to wait for the Xfwm fix to get into Arch or use the workaround until then. Or rebuild Xfwm with the patch yourself...
