Linux teamviewer runs, logging into computer diconnects


Today teamviewer started to act very strange, with no apparent changes to the computers involved.

I can see the remote computer (headless server), I can connect initially and come to the login screen for Ubuntu 16.04.  However, when I ty and log into my Ubuntu account teamviewer seems to stall and the connection is dropped.  If I try and reconnect, I a connection could not be estabolished.  I can still connect to the machine by SSH so there is no issue with an internet connection or the machine crashing.

    Hi Josh,

    which exact version of TeamViewer are you using on the Linux side?
    Make sure you have the latest build.
    Does the GUI start at all? (If you manually start it over there).

    All the best,
