slack-desktop crashes after update

After doing a system update and updating my AUR slack-desktop package and then restarting my computer, slack-desktop no longer starts. It writes this to journald:

May 06 01:13:53 nathanb-dev cinnamon[2146]: JS LOG: [LookingGlass/info] Adding XAppStatusIcon:  (:1.43/org/x/StatusIcon/Icon_2)

It was previously working fine.

Re: slack-desktop crashes after update

A quick glance at the AUR page for slack-desktop would have shown me that I'm not the only one with the problem and I need to downgrade my package. Sorry for the noise.

Re: slack-desktop crashes after update

There are few options to install slack. Among the options there are a flatpak and a few in the AUR.
In my experience the flatpak gave the best stable experience (I ended up using mostly the web though).


* Good formatted problem description will cause good and quick solution smile
* Please don't forget to mark as [SOLVED].
