Slack on openSUSE Leap 42.2

Some time ago I ditched Debian based distros and switched to openSUSE. One of newer required software for it was Slack desktop client which on it’s linux download page does not have openSUSE package, but Fedora 64bit package works just fine.

To fix that issue, simply import GPG key by opening terminal and typing:

Thanx to flanaras for his original post and hope this helped someone.
