I recently had the opportunity to install Microsoft Teams on my Manjaro Linux system, and it was quite an interesting experience. In this article, I will guide you through the step-by-step process of installing Microsoft Teams on Manjaro, sharing my personal insights and commentary along the way. So, let’s dive in!
Step 1: Enable AUR Repository
First things first, we need to enable the Arch User Repository (AUR) on Manjaro. The AUR is a community-driven repository that contains a vast collection of software packages. To enable the AUR, open the Manjaro Package Manager (pamac), go to Preferences, and check the “Enable AUR” option. This will allow you to install packages from the AUR.
Step 2: Install Dependencies
Next, we need to install some dependencies that are required for Microsoft Teams to run properly. Open a terminal and enter the following command:
sudo pacman -S libpulse alsa-plugins
This command will install the necessary audio dependencies for Teams to function correctly.
Step 3: Download and Install Microsoft Teams
Now that we have the AUR enabled and the dependencies installed, we can proceed to install Microsoft Teams. Open the Manjaro Package Manager (pamac) and search for “teams.” You should see the “teams” package in the search results. Click on it and then click the “Install” button to begin the installation process. Alternatively, you can install Teams from the command line using the following command:
yay -S teams
This command will automatically download and install Microsoft Teams from the AUR.
Step 4: Launch Microsoft Teams
Once the installation is complete, you can launch Microsoft Teams by searching for it in the application menu or by running the following command in the terminal:
After launching Teams, you will be prompted to sign in with your Microsoft account. Once you have signed in, you will have access to all the features and functionalities of Microsoft Teams on your Manjaro system.
Installing Microsoft Teams on Manjaro may seem a bit daunting at first, but with the help of the AUR and a few simple commands, it can be done smoothly. By following the steps outlined in this article, you should now have Microsoft Teams up and running on your Manjaro Linux system. So go ahead, collaborate, chat, and video conference with your team using the power of Microsoft Teams!
