No, patch should not be added as dependency.
You need to have base-devel installed:

Can you add "patch" as a dependency? I installed by hand and was able to install slack-desktop after that, but before I installed manually I kept getting this:

==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting package()...
/home/ave/.cache/pacaur/slack-desktop/PKGBUILD: line 23: patch: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
Aborting...

Anyone else having problems with screensharing? When I start it there's a white overlay over my entire screen with the typical green borders, but I can't see anything on my desktop.

Hi guys,

My Slack here (2.8.2-3) is not tab-completing anymore if I start typing a name without the "@" symbol. Is anybody else having this problem?

Cheers!

Please note that the launcher contains a `--disable-gpu` flag. If you notice poor performance or glitches (parts of screen disappearing on hover) remove the flag, you can also launch `slack &` from terminal to test first without modifying the launcher. The `Hardware Acceleration` checkbox in settings apparently has no effect.

If somebody wants a dark theme (instead of the light one), then
please:

1. Open
`/usr/lib/slack/resources/app.asar.unpacked/src/static/ssb-interop.js`

2. Append the following code:

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
$.ajax({
url: 'https://cdn.rawgit.com/laCour/slack-night-mode/master/css/raw/black.css',
success: function(css) {
$("<style></style>").appendTo('head').html(css);
}
});
});

Thanks. :)

@WorMzy You are right, I forgot the libcurl-compat. Fixed and quoted all variables. ;)

WorMzy commented on 2017-10-19 13:57

Great, thanks! A couple of things though:
* you should still depend on libcurl-compat, since you patch the desktop file to preload it
* you forgot to fix the pkgdir quoting (any instances of either $srcdir or $pkgdir should be enclosed in doublequotes, since they can contain spaces)

@WorMzy sorry, I had not had time to check depends in a clean install. I fix it, and now we have the minimal set of depends for make it work.
