Thanks. :)

@WorMzy You are right, I forgot the libcurl-compat. Fixed and quoted all variables. ;)

Great, thanks! A couple of things though:
* you should still depend on libcurl-compat, since you patch the desktop file to preload it
* you forgot to fix the pkgdir quoting (any instances of either $srcdir or $pkgdir should be enclosed in doublequotes, since they can contain spaces)

@WorMzy sorry, I had not had time to check depends in a clean install. I fix it, and now we have the minimal set of depends for make it work.

@ogarcia: I'm not sure if you missed my comment from the start of September, but the gvfs and libgnome-keyring dependences are definitely not needed to run the application. Even if you have determined that they are necessary for some features, they should be optdepends with explanations on what they are actually needed for. Also, the unquoted pkgdir instances should still be fixed in any case.

I can't close notifications using esc, or entering a new message. I have to physically click on the 'x' to do so. I know, that's probably not an issue with this particular package, but god this program sucks.

Edit: Still have a blank icon in Openbox...

I switched the notification engine from xfce4-notifyd to notify-osd-customizable. This fixed Slack, and other issues I had with notifications.

@shioyama @valandil @speedle
Could you post it here - I have the issue as well and it might be useful down the line for future visitors to see what solution is.

Is anyone else having issues getting video chat to work? For me, a new window opens and the loading icon spins forever. If so, did you find a fix?
