Do you really need https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=slack-electron#n31?

When I remove that line, slack still works

@jdraymon I confirm.

Couldn't get the login on this version (9c99ffddf064) to work - magic login with the regular slack-desktop worked fine.

Looks like it processes the magic link but then restarts, clearing the login. unclear if it's this package or https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/electron-ozone .

Took some startup logs, can provide if someone wants them.

@a172, when do you get that error? I'm not getting it, and I don't have openh264 installed...

a172 commented on 2020-12-07 14:26

Missing dependancy openh264 (AUR). Without it, you get:

electron: error while loading shared libraries: libopenh264.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

If others are not having this problem, it might be a Wayland dependency.

@jbmorgado Fixed it, I've added it as an optional dependency. :)

Is missing a dependency: libappindicator-gtk3

Without this, it doesn't show the notification indicator in the status bar on Gnome.

For people with difficulties signing in:

  1. Obtain a slack:// link, a.k.a. a "magic link" from https://$your-workspace.slack.com/ssb/signin_redirect
  2. Copy the link.
  3. Focus the Slack client.

This should open the workspace. The slack:// link is one-time use only, and will be cleared from your clipboard when focusing the client.

I was continually retrying this method, but was re-using the initial link I got from signing in. After getting a "fresh" link, it finally worked.
