      Maybe you shouldn't be making your life harder with LFS then. Works just fine on 18.04

      Code:
      sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc
      sudo echo 'deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/ms-teams/ stable main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teams.list
      sudo apt update
      sudo apt install -y teams

        Sounds like it needs more stack space, unless it's looping indefinitely.

        Great piece of advice, mate.

          Failing because of telemetry. How sad.

            Telemetry is the whole reason this application exists.

              Really nice, though you could still use it via the web browser earlier though.
              Great to see it packaged for Linux. Just too bad that it isn't open source.

                "Just too bad that it isn't open source."
                Funny remark, considering "Microsoft is an Opensource Company". Probably too much telemetry for that

                Question: What is the gain running this version instead of opening teams on a web browser?
                It's based on CEF so basically a stand-alone browser, but the news on Gaming on Linux mention now they can use screen sharing from Linux.

                  Can you name ONE company that releases ALL of their code to the public?

                  Remarks like this are completely useless. MS releases more and more code, yet peeps will always find a reason to complain.

                  - Hey folks, Teams is now free!
                  - But there's no Linux client!
                  - Alright then, here's the Linux client for ya!
                  - But but, it's not open source!
                  - Alrighty, now we released the code under the Apache license!
                  - Well duh, we want an MIT license!
                  ...

                  Some people literally can't be pleased.

                    I'm not raging about that asking them to release ALL their software as opensource, though, am I?

                    I'm glad they got it released, I really am... but it just really seems like a small gain (in functionality and trust), since the web version already existed and since the client wasn't opensourced.
