$ sudo mv skype-stable.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/
$ sudo dnf install skypeforlinux
$ skypeforlinux &

I installed snap in the past to install powerstat Snap app [5]. So, now I installed Slack like this.

$ sudo snap install slack

$ which slack

$ slack --version
/bin/bash: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8)

Run Slack like this.

$ slack &
