Hey guys, in my computer the tray icon is not always showing up that blue ball anymore when there are new messages - sometimes not even the red one for messages directed to me. Is anybody else experiencing this issue?

To fix the very small tray icon in HiDPI displays, you can add


To your desktop file. It'd be good to include the fix in the AUR package unless it breaks non-HiDPI displays.

@raul dark mode works for me on the current version 4.0.2-2

raul commented on 2019-09-12 17:13

is there a channel besides git where we can get this version?

I have to add that the packet lsb-release is a dependency of slack. I recently had a problem where Slack's window would not launch at all because it was failing to run the command "lsb-release -a" (see the log below). After installing it the program finally managed to launch.

The logs:

warn: Couldn't get Linux distro info from lsb_release, trying fallback to get L inux distro info { "error": { "stack": "Error: Command failed: lsb_release -a --short\n/bin/sh: lsb_release: command not found\n\n at ChildProcess.exithandler (child_process.js:299:12)\n at ChildProcess.emit (events.js:182:13)\n at ChildProcess.EventEmitter.emit (domain.js:442:20)\n at maybeClose (internal/child_process.js:9 62:16)\n at (internal/child_process.js:381:11)\n at Socket.emit (events.js :182:13)\n at Socket.EventEmitter.emit (domain.js:442:20)\n at Pipe._handle.close (net.js:606:12)" , "message": "Command failed: lsb_release -a --short\n/bin/sh: lsb_release: command not found\n", "killed": false, "code": 127, "signal": null, "cmd": "lsb_release -a --short", "stdout": "", "stderr": "/bin/sh: lsb_release: command not found\n" },

Hope it helps

@bakgwailo This fixed it for me, too. I'm also on a reasonably fresh Arch install, so I'm not sure how this got into my local.conf

So, just as a last follow up - I had a bunch of 'junk' in my /etc/fonts/local.conf config file:

<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd"> <fontconfig> <match> <edit mode="prepend" name="family"><string>Noto Sans</string></edit> </match> <match target="pattern"> <test qual="any" name="family"><string>serif</string></test> <edit name="family" mode="assign" binding="same"><string>Noto Serif</string></edit> </match> <match target="pattern"> <test qual="any" name="family"><string>sans-serif</string></test> <edit name="family" mode="assign" binding="same"><string>Noto Sans</string></edit> </match> <match target="pattern"> <test qual="any" name="family"><string>monospace</string></test> <edit name="family" mode="assign" binding="same"><string>Noto Mono</string></edit> </match> </fontconfig>

Moving this file (mv /etc/fonts/local.conf /etc/fonts/local.conf.bak) solved all of my font issues, including the latest version of Slack. Clean install, don't really remember touching it, but it definitely was forcing everything into the Noto world.

I was able to "fix" the font issue by downgrading to 3.4.2-1 (no ttf-loto installed or anything else, noto-fonts still installed), if that helps anyone else.

@pauliokas Where did you end up putting that? Can't get it to work under /etc/fonts/conf.d/ or ~/.config/fonconfig/fonts.conf

My fc-match Slack-Lato stays as:

NotoSans-Regular.ttf: "Noto Sans" "Regular"

even with an fc-cache -f

@klusark is true, removed gconf dependency
