Ubuntu – Opening Slack logs the user out of ubuntu

18.04desktop appslogoutslack

As soon as I start slack app(snap) I get logged out of my user in Ubuntu 18.04.

I will provide more info if I can check things before it logs me out. Can you please suggest how I check for some logs and also how to fix this issue.

Here is a dmesg output after logging back in -> https://pastebin.com/uzqXUe1C

This happened to me as well when installing from the snap repository.

I uninstalled the snap, removed the ~/.config/Slack folder and then reinstalled from deb file. I downloaded it from here: https://slack.com/downloads/linux

The app worked on first try and after reboot it kept working. Hope it helps.
