It sounds like you're using the wrong keymap. Different keyboards have different keys in different places. The keymap tells your computer where each key is. I think if you type "setup" it gives you a chance to configure your keymap, but I haven't used slack in a while, so I'm not totally sure. You could also try "apropos keymap"
