cannot give control using linux, ubuntu 20

PeterK 6 Reputation points

I am using Ubuntu latest version, on new Dell, using Teams Preview edition. I cannot give control of a teams shared session. The other person does not get the button to apepar.
When using a Mac, they do, and i am able to share.
So seems there is a issue with the linux client. We use office 365 corporate supported edition.

    @PeterK ,

    It recommends you clear client cache by the following command and try again:

    rm -r ~/.config/Microsoft/Microsoft\ Teams\ -\ Insiders  

    If no luck, make sure your client is the latest version.

    I tested in Teams version with the following configuration parameters. It works properly.

    During Teams meeting, it shows “Take control” button on Linux user’s client when presenter shares screen as below:

    If the above suggestions don’t fix this problem, I have more questions want to confirm with you:

    When does this problem appear?

    Do you do any changes?

    Does anyone else have the same problem?

    I tried the
    rm -r -f ~/.config/Microsoft/'Microsoft\ Teams'
    and it didn't do any good...

    I'm running Debian 11 and MS Teams Version: (64-bit)

    I'm on Fedora 35 and I'm able to share my screen with others, not sure what's wrong with Ubuntu setup, my friend using Ubuntu 21.10 is also not able to share screen.
