Help Installing TeamViewer 12 in debian 9 linux

Hi,
Newbie here.  I'm trying to install teamview 12 in my debian 9 linux on an old laptop. 
I downloaded the package teamview_12xxx_i386.deb

I did (as root):

[email protected]:/home/will/Downloads# apt install teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb

E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb'
[email protected]:/home/will/Downloads# apt install ./teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb

Note, selecting 'teamviewer:i386' instead of './teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb'
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
teamviewer:i386 : Depends: libc6:i386 (>= 2.11) but it is not installable
Depends: libgcc1:i386 but it is not installable

Depends: libxtst6:i386 but it is not installable
Depends: zlib1g:i386 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I then did an

Code: [Select]
apt-get install -f

but that didn't help.

    use gdebi, it installs all you need

  • Thanks.  I used gdebi and it looked like it was working, until I got this error:

    Any idea how to get past the "libjpeg62" dependency error?

  • Update:  Someone suggested I try:

    sudo apt-get install libpng12-0

    because the package name 'libpng12-0:i386' did not work.  I tried the above, and I got:

    [email protected]:/home/will/Downloads# gdebi libpng12-0_1.2.50-2+deb8u3_amd64.deb 
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree

    Reading state information... Done
    This package is not able to be installed

    it looks like libpng12-0 requires some dependencies.  Do you know what I could try to fix the libpng12-0 dependency?

    i've found this package: https://packages.debian.org/stretch/libjpeg62-turbo
    maybe it can help you
    libpng is from debian8, i think it's a problem to install it

  • Thanks mmiat.  I'm going crazy.  I tried installing libjpeg... and here's the error I got.

    Any suggestions?  I don't know why this is happening.  debian is supposed to be extremely stable.

    retry "apt-get -f install" to check everything is ok

  • Thanks mmiat!  It worked!!!  I don't know how you figured that all out, but Teamviewer is now running!  

    My steps were:

    apt-get -f install
    gdebi libjpeg62-turbo_1.5.1-2_amd64.deb 
    gdebi libpng12-0_1.2.50-2+deb8u3_amd64.deb 
    gdebi teamviewer_12.0.85001_i386.deb

    And in more detail, here is the whole installation from the terminal:
