Teamviewer will not start on ubuntu

Whenever I try and start TeamViewer, I get the following:

[email protected]:~/.config$ teamviewer

Init...
CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes
Checking setup...
chmod: changing permissions of '/home/user/.config/teamviewer': Operation not permitted
chmod: changing permissions of '/home/user/.local/share/teamviewer13/logfiles': Operation not permitted
Launching TeamViewer ...
Launching TeamViewer GUI ...
/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script/tvw_main: line 146: /home/user/.local/share/teamviewer13/logfiles/gui.log: Permission denied

Anyone know what the issue might be? I assume it's a folder permission issue.

The only way I've managed to get it to run is to do do:

sudo su

sudo teamviewer
