Teams - Fix Black Screen When Sharing Screen

I recently found out that disabling compositing in Xubuntu massively improves performance. Unfortunately it also causes Microsoft Teams to turn a display I share completely black so I can't see anything on it.


One just has to move one file to stop it being used, and that "fixes" the issue.

sudo mv -i \
  /usr/share/teams/resources/app.asar.unpacked/node_modules/slimcore/bin/rect-overlay \
