@hpstg, as a workaround you can install slack-desktop, complete the browser-based login procedure with it, then replace it with this package. You will remain logged-in.

Co-maintainer spots are open for those who use this package more than I do.

Sorry for delay with updates, I disowned this package, feel free to adopt it.

@yurikoles, now slack is at 4.16.0, so the out of date signal is also outdated, :)

@hpstg, what do you mean, I use slack for the office and I have to login thorugh SSO, and it works just fine...

The package by default still cannot complete the login procedure, regardless of DE or browser.

The latest update has made the PKGBUILD significantly more difficult to review.

Why were all references to "slack" updated to "${_product}"? It's longer to write and more difficult to read.

Can you please update the bin script to use '#!/bin/bash' instead of '#!/bin/sh'? Pacman has a hard dependency on bash, so everyone will always have it installed. There's no reason to use '#!/bin/sh' on an Arch Linux system.

@Koffiepoeder It's working for me. I'm using Sway and simply executed slack --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland.

Still cannot login with the latest PKGBUILD, which looks to have the changes integrated. This is under X11 in Gnome.

For those wondering, using this version to get slack to run under wayland did NOT work for me (i.e. changing /user/bin/slack with the chromium flags --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland). Kind of expected, but at least worth a try.

@mvdan A request for making it an orphan package is already pending. Once the request goes through, other users can take over the package and push new changes.
