@zehph if you have any clue about mining with ms-teams, report upstream, if not, please don't spread FUD

I've checked the PKGBUILD and it didn't appear to have anything wrong, but after installed it was consuming too much CPU and the computer would get hot af and the fans would slow down as soon as I closed teams... I didn't say anything because I have no evidence, but I've dusted off my tinfoil hat and removed the package from my system.

Basically said, this PKGBUILD just takes .deb package provided by Microsoft, and unzips it into your filesystem.

You can inspect the package by donwloading it from and open it in archive manager of your choice (for example File Roller, engrampa, Ark, etc.).

I don't get what you are trying to say about bitcoin and other stuff. If you dont like binaries provided, shout @ Microsoft.

Anyone else noticed the spikes in processor usage and references to a renderer with a flag to disable a function to spare said renderer and another saying token? I then "grep'd" for bitcoin and I found references in timeshift pointing to /usr/share/teams if I'm not mistaken, I can't verify the paths anymore because I uninstalled the package, but someone more savyy with this kind of stuff should REALLY give a thourough look on this package, because I could almost fry an egg on my notebook If I left Teams open for too long!

Does this version support dynamic backgrounds for video chats?

As others have said like webcam and mic to not work after a clean build. For me, It was able to detect webcam and mic out of the box under Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Series.

The app has a slight problem, at least in the 2 WM that I've used (I3 and DWM) the app doesn't close to tray, and the close button doesn't work. The only ways so it will always be in a Workspace/Tag or I have to kill, but then I don't get notifications, obviously.

@juanmah if your camera isn't working, it's possible that you need to go into preferences and change the camera source. My webcam (Thinkpad T490) somehow generates two camera inputs, even though there's only one physical camera; and only one of those inputs actually shows a picture.

@jvybihal Ooh it works now cool.

@thumbless I am using yay, and it works fine here. Try yay -Scc && yay -S teams and make a clean build.
