Microsoft Teams on Linux

There is an official native Linux client for MS Teams, but it still is missing features and is only in a “Preview” state for years.

Here are some workarounds I found on the way while using teams

One of the key benefits of Teams vs. so many other platforms is the ability to remotely control the shared screen of someone or vice versa. Sadly, not so with Linux.

here is a workaround to at least allow a Linux client to control other Windows clients. The command specified in the original article has a few typos, here is the fixed one:

stop Teams app

sed -i 's/"enableScreenSharingToolbar":false/"enableScreenSharingToolbar":true/g' ~/.config/Microsoft/Microsoft\ Teams/settings.json

start Teams app
