TeamViewer GUI Frozen on Remote Host


 I have installed TeamViewer on a CentOS 8 system using the RPM package.

rpm -qa|grep teamv 

 The daemon starts seems to run fine.

systemctl status teamviewerd 
● teamviewerd.service - TeamViewer remote control daemon
  Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/teamviewerd.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)

When I click the icon in the gui nothing happens and the gui is frozen. It does not display the TeamViewer ID and I can't run the wizard to link it to my licenced account. Running TeamViewer on the command line prints out a couple lines but that is it, it does not launch or open another gui. There does not appear to be a way to run the TeamViewer command with a verbose option.

Nothing is recorded in the messages, audit, or TeamViewer logs.

Any options to try or hints on what is breaking?

    Was missing a dependency for Qt 5


    Installing it fixes the problem
