teamviewer GUI never comes up on RHEL8

I previously used teamviewer12 and 13 on RHEL7 as a client to reach other viewers.

I recently tried to use it on RHEL8 (8.5) and no window is coming up in my Windowing environment.

Here's what I see:

$ rpm -qa teamv\*


Launching the GUI:

$ teamviewer 


CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes

Checking setup...

Launching TeamViewer ...

Starting network process (no daemon)

Network process already started (or error)

Launching TeamViewer GUI ...

$ echo $?


I used the same process (install the rpm, launch the viewer) on Fedora34 and there it worked (I accepted the EULA and TV came up) but on RHEL8 TV never presents a GUI.

In the TeamViewer Log, I see this:

Any ideas?

    Got it working by installer

    # rpm -qa minizip1.2\*


    IMHO the teamviewer rpm should require to help with dependencies.

    interesting: the teamviewer-suse rpm has modeled that requirement:

    $ rpm -q --requires teamviewer-suse | grep mini
