A Docker image that start a fresh Slack-desktop client.
To spawn a new instance of Slack:
docker run --rm -it --name slack \ -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix \ -e DISPLAY=unix$DISPLAY \ --device /dev/snd \ -v ~/.config/Slack:/root/.config/Slack \ xorilog/slack-desktop
- You have to log out Slack to close the docker container.
- Slack app is reloaded multiple time before fixing itself
Before Docker 1.8 you need to replace
--device /dev/snd by
-v /dev/snd:/dev/snd --privileged.
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display unix:0
do not forget to remove it after start or usage (
The previous command is to be run on a linux machine. But Mac users, I have a special surprise for you. You can also do fun hacks with X11. Details are described here.
Thanks to Slack for their great app !
