In both

  • MS Teams (Microsoft Teams Version (64-bit)) and

  • Zoom (Version: 5.10.4 (2845))

on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (42.0, Wayland) no screen shows up after clicking on "share screen".

Hardware: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd, Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics 620 (KBL GT2), Intel® Core™ i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 8 connected with two monitors via Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 dock.

Is there a configuration issue, or is screen sharing not supported?

More From » 22.04


These applications have not been updated for Wayland, which is why screensharing does not anymore work for the time being.

You may want to switch to Xorg to regain this functionality. To do so, log out, then, before entering your password, click the cog on the bottom right and log in on "Ubuntu on Xorg".

Other workarounds include relaxing security settings in Gnome Shell or using a browser based version of Zoom in a browser that supports Wayland.
