Is anyone else having issues getting video chat to work? For me, a new window opens and the loading icon spins forever. If so, did you find a fix?

Thanks to @WorMzy for the contribution

Are gvfs and libgnome-keyring still needed? I removed them (and added libsecret, nss and libxkbfile, which namcap reported as missing dependencies), and the application seems to work fine without all the gtk3 junk.

As a side note, the PKGBUILD has unquoted pkgdir references. Here is a fixed up PKGBUILD:

Getting a weird error since upgrading the kernel::

Anyone else getting this?

@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?
