Download Slack for Linux (beta)
The Slack desktop app is the easiest way to use Slack on Linux. To get started, take a look at the steps we’ve outlined below.
Note: Slack for Linux is in beta. We’re still busy adding features and making adjustments to the app. 🐝
Step 1: Download the Slack app
At the moment we support Ubuntu, Fedora, and RHEL.
Download the app from the Slack downloads page
Download .deb (64 bit) or Download .rpm (64-bit). Locate the file in your Downloads folder (the downloaded file name will begin with slack-desktop).
Double click the file to view Slack in the Ubuntu Software Center.
Install. You may need to enter the password you use to log in to Ubuntu. To run the app, search your computer for Slack, then double click the Slack icon.
Install Slack from the command line with snap
sudo snap install slack --classic
Tip: We don’t recommend having both the .deb and .snap package installed at the same time.
Download .rpm (64-bit). Locate the file in your Downloads folder (the downloaded file name will begin with
slack). Open the file in your package manager.
Install. You may need to enter the password you use to log in to Fedora. To launch Slack, click
Activities, Show Applications, and then the Slack icon. You may need to scroll through your applications to find it.
Download .rpm (64-bit). Click
Save File, then OK. Open Terminal.
Run the following commands in your terminal:
rpm -Uvh epel-release-latest-7.rpm
sudo yum -y install ~/Downloads/slack-3.2.1-0.1.fc21.x86_64.rpm
Note: Make sure your system is registered with Red Hat Subscription Manager.
Step 2: Sign into your workspace
Once you’ve installed the Slack app, you can sign in to a workspace you’re already a member of, join a workspace , or create your own .
Follow the steps below to update the Slack app for your version of Linux.
Update Slack by entering these commands from the command line:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade slack-desktop
Update Slack by running this command from the command line:
sudo dnf update slack
