Black screenshots in Linux (Ubuntu)
If you see black rectangles on place of real screenshots then most likely your Linux users use Wayland desktop manager (It is default in most recent Ubuntu distributions and some other distros). This issue is related to browser integration into OS and is not related to Tracklify. It happens in all productivity tools which use share screen feature (For example Google Meets).
You can pretty easily overcome this issue using one of two ways:
1. Just switch from Wayland session to Xorg session on Ubuntu login screen:
2. Alternatively, If you have no Xorg in your distro at all and don't want to install it, you could try to enable experimental Pipewire protocol in your browser. For example in chrome just go to
chrome://flags/#enable-webrtc-pipewire-capturer set it as enabled and restart chrome.
