Teams for Linux Not Being Opened to Meeting Links

I am a non-domain user with a personal account and a guest account for one of my customers. Recently, when presented with a Calendar invite that has a Teams meeting URL (I use Chrome browser and Gmail), the meeting is not opened. Teams does open, but doesn't go to the meeting. This had worked previously in earlier versions. But in 1.4.00.4855 (64-bit), it doesn't. I have ended up using the browser option as a workaround. I am running Linux Mint 20.1.

P.S. is there a way from the desktop Linux app to just join a meeting by its number?

@KennySchiff-6521,

You need to adjust the last line in /usr/bin/teams

Change:
nohup "$TEAMS_PATH" --disable-namespace-sandbox --disable-setuid-sandbox "$@" > "$TEAMS_LOGS/teams-startup.log" 2>&1 &

To:
nohup "$TEAMS_PATH" "$@" --disable-namespace-sandbox --disable-setuid-sandbox > "$TEAMS_LOGS/teams-startup.log" 2>&1 &

Recently, many people report this problem in Teams for Linux 1.4.00.4855. You could refer to this thread to know more information.

@KennySchiff-6521,

We can confirm that it is a bug now. Microsoft will fix it with next version.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

@KennySchiff-6521,
Now, this issue is fixed in Teams for Linux version 1.4.00.7556(64-bit).
If your client is the older one, please update to the latest version.

And after that, they say the Microsoft love Linux? This is a full total complete lie. Microsoft doesn't care about Linux users, they care only about their Azure stuff.
Is it so complicated to test an application? No! The Microsoft Teams Client has the same Electron based core regardless the OS. So on Linux you have only two categories of tests to do: Inputs and Outputs. The bug is an Input, it was not tested! Microsoft, you have probably THOUSANDS of developers to be sure that Linux run correctly on Azure... How many do you have to test MS-Teams on Linux? Less than one? Why do you think there is so many Microsoft Haters out there?
Microsoft, you don't care about users, you care only about one thing: Money.
Please hire a few QA testers for your Linux products like MS-Teams for Linux. Is that too much to ask? And perform your tests with a real Linux distros, not with your stupid WSL. Thanks.
