I( using Fedora 26) can not share my screen to my friend (Windows 10 ).we tried wit Team viewer and skype and Google hangout. When I shared the screen only the mouse is visible to him.

I tried to refer below blog

I may be wrong, but could this possibly be due to Wayland?

You have to login to Your Fedora with,

just click Logout, click the gearwheel and choose option.

At now screen sharing is working on google hangouts.

This is a bug in Wayland.

screen sharing option is not available in skype when you log in with wayland which is default is fedora gnome. To get the screen share option. just log out or restart in login screen select xorg using the settings button. Now you will see the screen share option in skype/other software will be available while you are in a video call.
