Screen Sharing for Linux Webex Desktop

Again, I am very thankful for the new Linux Desktop app! I have been very pleasantly surprised by how good it is!


Screen sharing does seem to work on officially supported distros, but even then it only seems to provide the option to share the whole screen.

    Same for me - I can share the screen but not individual windows. This is a blocker for me to use the app in meetings. I'd love for this to be resolved quickly so I can stop using the web app!

    Hmm. Perhaps this is also due to system admin policy, but I was able to get this working on the Windows version. Perhaps it was a missed dependency when I deptapped it? (I'm on Manjaro for most of my devices) It usually seems to work great, but it may have failed here, so I'll look into this.

    I have installed the .deb package on Linux Mint and screen sharing is working fine. It seems to only allow you to share the whole desktop at the moment, however (not individual apps).

    There is screen sharing but it's just whatever is on your desktop. I would like audio/video sharing
