micahicross Posts: 1

I downloaded. the deb package and double clicked.  It brougt up the Ubuntu Software Center and the orange bar that shows the progress gets to the very end but never finishes.  How do I get it unstuck, installed and verify it installed okay?  I am new to Linux and not quite sure what to do.

    Dear micahicross,

    Thank you for your post.

    Please open up the console and use the following commands to install TeamViewer.

    cd /tmp
    wget download.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_i386.deb
    sudo apt-get install -f -y

    Then test TeamViewer if it's installed successfully by running the following command

    teamviewer &

    After that TeamViewer should be running as expected.

    Hope this solution works for you.

    If you have any further questions don't hesitate to contact us.

    This works for a standard install, unfortunatly I am trying to load our banded deployment.

    When we try and use the web download the install fails, how do we download and install the DEB file that is branded?
