Teamviewer 13 not connecting in Ubuntu 18.04 Login Screen

bobgutierrez Posts: 4 ✭✭

I installed Ubuntu 18.04, and I noticed that in the Login Screen Teamviewer (teamviewer_13.1.3026_amd64) is not connecting.

However, when I log in then Im able to use Teamviewer.

I didn't have this issue with Ubuntu 16.04 and teamviewer_13.1.3026_amd64.

    I'm having the same issue. I can log in, but won't connect to host.

    I get a similar issue. After reboot, I cannot connect via Teamviewer.

    Following manual login, Teamviewer is able to connect at the login screen until the next reboot.

    Same here. On Ubuntu 18.04 bootup, Teamviewer 13 does not start. Starts after login.

    That workaround link is 404.. can someone transcribe post relevant information?

    Links are 404 because Teamviewer forum didn't allow me to write full urls as in their content have beaver word.

    Substitute the **bleep** by beaver word.

    sudo gedit /etc/gdm3/custom.conf

    Uncomment this line in custom.conf file:


    and Reboot.

    I can confirm with TeamViewer 14 and Ubuntu 18.10 that this works
