It appears that resetting the pulseaudio config worked to get my mic working again!

mv ~/.config/pulse ~/.config/pulse-bak
pulseaudio --kill
pulseaudio --start

@cowai: background blur and replacing the background with an image have never worked for me.

cowai commented on 2020-10-14 10:35

Is background blur supposed to work with this?

@TornaxO7, you might have used sudo before and moved some of your files to root ownership. I dont have problem launching teams with a normal user. I suggest you run a "sudo chown -R your_username:your_group /home/your_username"

I'm getting this error message if I want to start teams:

zsh: permission denied: teams

Why do I have to use sudo for that?

So @Japhir, you're simply using this package for incoming video and audio/mic on Chromium. Too much hassle frankly. I use teams-for-linux electron app and it works fine,although shows one person at a time, which OK for me. Hope MS fixes this audio problem at least quickly, not sure why it's happening and why can't they open pulseaudio devices correctly.

For those who also experience issues with sound/mic input not working (using pulseaudio) and screensharing crashing the client immediately (on sway/wayland), here's the way I've been handling meetings with colleagues lately: - still use this app to connect to video, because it allows me to see multiple people simultaneously (with the web app/teams-for-linux you only see one person at a time) - connect to the meeting through chromium, disable incoming video, use this to connect to the mic and audio. If I have to screenshare, do so from here. I can only share X11 applications (like emacs) and chromium tabs (so I can open PDFs etc. in there if needed). I hope this helps some of you, I'm still waiting for Microsoft to fix this stuff and to give us access to the mosaic view with all attendant videos showing simultaneously!

With BSPWM and Teams (no compositor) when closing the window I get a permanent black bar over any other windows I open in its place - end up having to kill and relaunch X.

Anyone else?

Hi using i3wm on manjaro , get this info out of here and I'm walking ok for now :)

The symptoms would be a black screen with a red border. If you have this, can you try renaming this file (so it is not used) /usr/share/teams/resources/app.asar.unpacked/node_modules/slimcore/bin/rect-overlay

We are working on the solution on our side.

Is Screensharing working for anyone on Sway?
