Linux Teams directory structure, log file format and notification area icon

Hi!

Thanks for releasing Teams for Linux, much appreciated!

Earlier today I posted some observations about the client on LinkedIn, and got suggested that I should post here, so here I am. Here's a copy-paste of what I wrote to LinkedIn:

  • In Linux, ~/.config directory should contain only the configuration files like the name says, and any logs, caches, temporary files etc should go under ~/.local/share/ directory, or whatever directory XDG_DATA_HOME environment variable has been set to. Now, in just matter of hours, my Teams client has stored 137 MB worth of ... something... under my precious ~/.config/.

  • The log file contains Windows newlines (\r\n) instead of the standard Unix (\n) newlines, which is not ideal, should I ever need to debug any issues.

  • At least with a dark OS theme I have in my KDE I cannot see Teams icon in the notification area at all, there's just a grey placeholder.

Thank you :)

Janne

Thank you for your feedback and your time.
We are aware of the directory issue and it is next on our list of improvements. When we finish this work, we will post a new update to the app.

Hmm. Interesting. A notification area icon appeared hours later automatically without me doing anything special, I did not restart Teams application or anything, just had the laptop running.
