TeamViewer is one of the winners of the European Customer Centricity Award 🥳

Teamviewer 14, Missing GUI ubuntu 18.04, lightdm, Cinnamon desktop

Been fighting this since upgrading from 16.04.  Finally got it working.

My solution was to install nscd.  Apparently, it's needed to cough up session information if you're using an LDAP account, and perhaps in general as well.  Hopefully, TV staff will comment on this?

Wondering if this needs to be added as a dependency?

    Same on Ubuntu 20.04 and Teamviewer 15.

    Had to restart in order for teamviewer to show up after installing nscd.
