What are the prerequisites for running teams (Javascript error on startup)

Hello,

What are the prerequisites for the linux installation to succesfully run Teams. I've installed Teams on Ubuntu 16.04 But got an error when starting the application.

NodeJs is version 8.17 and npm 6.13.4 and electron is installed.

Errormessage is attached to the post..

Thanks.
Michel

@MichelC-3576 looking at logs, it seems like it was installed properly. But unfortunately it looks like you hit one bug. We have it already fixed in a code base and should be working fine for you as soon as we update to new version

On Linux, package managers such as apt and yum will try to install any requirements for you. However, if they don't then you will need to install any reported requirements before installing Teams on Linux.
According to your description, I recommend you reinstall the Teams client and have a try.

Sharon,

Thanks for your feedback. I installed Teams with dkpg and any missing dependency was installed. I'm not using native Ubuntu 16.04 but the HP ThinPro 7.1 version.. This uses 16.04 as base but with his own taste. I was hoping that there was a list or requirements which I could check.

But if not, i will try to figure out myself using trial and error :)

If anyone has noticed some requirements I'm happy to receive them.

Thanks!
