Teamviewer not starting on Raspberry Pi

I am at a complete standstill on this set of errors. The startup script is failing:

[email protected]:/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script $ uname -a
Linux raspberrypi 4.9.20+ #985 Mon Apr 3 10:19:25 BST 2017 armv6l GNU/Linux

[email protected]:/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script $ cat /etc/debian_version

[email protected]:/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/script $ teamviewer

Checking setup...
Launching TeamViewer ...

    Due to the lack of any help with this problem, I have now purchased a new RPi and am trying to run the Host version. See another posting for problems with lack of persistent ID and password with this new solution. At least the host version installs and runs (once per boot session, anyway).


  • I'm seeing this behavior on a Pi Zero, as well.

    Would be nice if the Pi Zero will be supported as well.

  • yes would be great for the pi zero to be supported.  tried ages to get it to run.  it installs fine just wont run
