Microsoft Teams on Linux

June 6, 2021

Use the Snap, not the Deb

I recently had issues running Teams on Ubuntu. Teams had been working fine but recently stopped working. I would get into a login loop upon launching Teams. It would take my login but then loop and asking for the info again without reporting an error. I read online this was resolved by using the Snap version. I tend to avoid the Snap versions of apps but gave it a try

sudo snap install teams

After completion I launched again and then was taken to a different login screen for Teams and then it worked fine. Well, as about as fine as Teams goes on Linux but it worked.

I then decided to clean up and remove the old Teams version

sudo apt remove teams

The Deb version of Teams was removed and all good.



Whenever we need an AWS server spun up we simply pop NTS an email and they take care of it immediately, as well as manage it going forward.  They’re very proactive in letting us know when more resources are needed and even when they are not, so we can downsize the instance and save money.   They take care of the infrastructure so we can focus on our development efforts.

We appreciate their availability and how quickly they resolve any issues we are having.   They know their stuff and we’re thankful for their support.

NTS is really helpful. They took care of the problem promptly and with ease. But what really made the difference was the friendliness and courtesy in how they handled themselves and our staff. Really appreciated their help and caring!
