How To Install Microsoft Teams On Linux From The Official MS Repository

How To Install Microsoft Teams On Linux From Official MS Repository

Microsoft Teams brings users together to collaborate on projects so work can get done as quickly and efficiently as possible. The official Microsoft Teams app is now available for Linux. Let’s show you how you can install it on your Linux system.

There are generally two ways in which you can install Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft provides Teams .deb installer files for Debian and Ubuntu based distributions and .rpm for Red Hat and other Red Hat related based platforms. You can download these files locally and install Microsoft Teams by running the files for your operating system. But it’s not good practice to offer directly rpm and deb packages from web page an it’s difficult to install said software programmatically that way.

Therefore, here we will show you the second approach, which is the best in our opinion.

Install MS Teams on Linux from Microsoft’s repository

Using a package manager, you can install and keep up to date the Teams application. Once you added the Microsoft’s software repository for Linux, you will be notified about software updates, bug fixes and new features whenever they are available. You can then update them using your default package manager on your Linux system.

The steps shown below do the following:

  1. Install repository signing Key
  2. Create the Teams App repository
  3. Update system package cache
  4. Install Microsoft Teams App from repository

Debian and Ubuntu based distributions

curl | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teams.list'
sudo apt update
sudo apt install teams

RHEL, Fedora and CentOS based distributions

sudo rpm --import
sudo sh -c 'echo -e "[teams]\nname=teams\nbaseurl=\nenabled=1\ngpgcheck=1\ngpgkey=" > /etc/yum.repos.d/teams.repo'
yum check-update
yum install teams

openSUSE based distributions

sudo rpm --import
sudo sh -c 'echo -e "[teams]\nname=teams\nbaseurl=\nenabled=1\nautorefresh=1\nkeeppackages=0\ntype=rpm-md\ngpgcheck=1\ngpgkey=" > /etc/zypp/repos.d/teams.repo'
sudo zypper refresh
sudo zypper install teams

That’s it. You have successfully installed Teams for Linux.
