thanks @louisnow. the workaround fix' it for me: mv /usr/share/teams/resources/app.asar.unpacked/node_modules/slimcore/bin/rect-overlay /usr/share/teams/resources/app.asar.unpacked/node_modules/slimcore/bin/rect-overlay-broken

For anyone suffering from the black screen with a red border when trying to screen share, Microsoft has acknowledged the problem and there's a temporary workaround.

You can use a X compositor as a workaround. For example when I run picom screen share works again (I run i3wm via xinitrc so no compositor active by default)

@Mexx77 To downgrade, uninstall teams. Clone the repo. git clone Checkout to the right commit and run makepkg -scri

Now to prevent automatic upgrades, add it to IgnorePkg

@maurice-mueller I have actually tried that earlier today but same issue - no share screen button. My computer must be missing something...

Workaround for screen sharing: the web app with Chrome browser can share your screen as well. I'm using that for now.

@louisnow @asamuel same here. with teams if I share my screen, monitor goes black with red border. How did u downgrade?

@NGeorgescu so screensharing did work? I am running this package on Manjaro and can't get any luck with the screensharing button even showing.

Ok so if you are having screensharing problems, you need to downgrade. My temporary solution is to grab the old (March 2020) .deb from here, debtap it, and then delete the dependencies, and pacman -U the .zst file. Not sure if this is a stupid way to do things until a fix is published or if some more elegant arch-like solution exists for downgrading from the AUR.

Thank you so much @jvybihal for the guidance.

The default arg for curl was -C - which resumes transfers. Apparently there was something wrong with a previously failed download. I couldn't find where the partially downloaded file was, so I removed the flag in my ~/.makepkg.conf.

Thanks very much for the help and apologies for polluting the comments section with a question apparently unrelated to this package.
