I assume by 'Temas' you mean 'Teams'. Is that correct? If so, have you
tried posting one of the MS Teams forums regarding this problem? I have
already made a request that has receive some support for a FreeBSD
specific version of Teams. The created one for at least Debian, so I
assume they could do the same for FreeBSD.
If you want, and can supply me with ALL the information,I would be
happy to make a report for you. I am on the 'Edge Dev' beta team,and
they LOVE to get info like this, especially edge cases like yours
appears to be.
By the way, I share your dislike of 'wine'. If I am going to go to the
trouble of running a pseudo OS environment, I might as well run the real
one and get all of the benefits. That is why I would suggest a VM, but
that is your choice.
