Teams Linux Client : "New meeting" dialog box failing (Ubuntu 20 and 18 LTS)

Since Jan 19th 2023 : on three separate installations of Teams client for Linux (Ubuntu 22 and Ubuntu 18 LTS) trying to add a "New Meeting" displays a blank dialog, with what appears to be a giant "X" partly visible. Followed the "rm -r ~/.config/Microsoft/Microsoft Teams" fix, which temporarily restores function, but not reliably and requires repeating this frequently (log out of teams, remove config files, restart then authenticate again).

Does not occur in web teams client.

Is this a bug in a Teams update or some Ubuntu update incompatibility ? And any better solution than the above ?

Thanks

Dan

    I'm currently having the very same issue. Ubuntu 20.04 here. I've updated to version 1.5.00.23861 and cleared the application cache, but still no success.

    My solution for this issue was to uninstall the Microsoft Teams Preview app and install Teams for Linux, which wraps the Teams web app to a convenient desktop app.

    I have the same issue in Linux Mint 20.3 - looks identical to Alexandre's screenshot. It means I cannot arrange meetings, quite a pain!
