Slack is a cloud-based set of proprietary team collaboration tools and services. Slack strives to be a flexible communication and collaboration platform for work, hobbyists, and other groups.


Slack is available here: slack-desktopAUR. Install using your favorite AUR helper or with makepkg.

Glibc Incompatibility

There is an incompatibility with glibc-2.28 and the latest version of Slack. The solution is as follows:

Depends: patchelf

 #wget -P /var/cache/pacman/pkg
 #mdkir /opt/glibc-2.27
 #bsdtar xf /var/cache/pacman/pkg/glibc-2.27-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz --cd /opt/glibc-2.27
 #patchelf --set-interpreter /opt/glibc-2.27/usr/lib/ --set-rpath \$ORIGIN:\$ORIGIN/lib/:/opt/glibc-2.27/usr/lib/ /usr/bin/slack
