Will Teamviewer support Wayland? And if so, when will this version of Teamviewer be released?
Hello dear Community friends,
I have quite some news for you...
Please find more information in our Blogpost here:
I hope you will be able to try it out.
We would appreciate any feedback! 🙏

Thank you for your post.
At the moment, our developers are working on a Linux Native version for Linux but there's no release date or information about features included.
I will forward your suggestion to support Wayland our product management team.
Such ideas are always welcome, although we can not promise when or if this Feature will be implemented.
Decisions for new features are mainly based on customer's suggestions.
Nevertheless, your feedback is crucial to us, as we want to continue to develop TeamViewer-based on our user's need.
Any other questions don't hesitate to ask.
My first try of TeamViewer ended up with "black screen" on client side (Chromebook in my case).
Server side is Fedora 25 and as you can guess the reason for the "black screen" is not on Chromebook side but due to the fact that Fedora 25 uses Wayland by default (unless confiugred differently).
As I found out today: when I use X it works.
So yes - please develop a Linux native version with Wayland support!
Now when Ubuntu 17.10 is out, its main display server is Wayland. Due to being the mainstream distro for linux\gnu we would require a Wayland compatible Teamviewer app. In 6 months there would be an LTS release which would adopt Wayland for the next few years at least.
Could we get at least and ETA\status update on work being done on Wayland support? If its possible currently, or Wayland security model is too comlpex to adapt Teamviewer for it? Because many articles over the net state that alot of things that X.org allowed, wont be possible with Wayland in current model. Curious if we as Teamviewer users on Ubuntu should wait for proper support of new technology stack, or go an search for an alternative for remote desktop app.
Same here. Just installed Ubuntu 17.10 and teamviewer doesn't work anymore on wayland, but it works on x.org. It doesn't work at all with the *.deb file on wayland and with the *.tar.gz file it ends up in a black screen. Any wayland support would be highly appreciated.
I had TeamViewer 12 install when I upgraded to Ubuntu 17.10 with Wayland.
No issues with TeamViewer whatsoever. It has continued being an essential tool.I support all kinds of people and systems with it.
Then I upgraded to TeamViewer 13 BETA and it simply says it cannot open in Wayland.
What is the point? If TeamViewer 12 works under Wayland, why can't 13?
Ubuntu 17.10 runs X applications under Wayland with no problems at all.
Please fix the BETA so I can continue using TeamViewer.
@WalterTamboer, @fansari, @Spurlos, @DigitalSpinner, @maggiv8, @rompePlease read about the current state of Wayland in the TV13 announcement.In short: GUI starts, outgoing connections possible.Also note that we will release an update next week adding important features.@ringe, you installed teamviewer-host, not teamviewer. Please read the announcement above, then try with the teamviewer package.
Along with our new release, I also posted a dedicated explanation on the state of Wayland:[Update: 13.0.6634] Christmas UpdateState of Wayland & TeamViewer
All the best,Daniel
Hi Thank you! Just installed the current preview and somehow is getting usable again (I'm on Ubuntu 17.10 with Wayland disabled) - I can both view/control and act as a server for my home linux desktop again (despite no integration with TV account, which obviously is work in progress I suppose..).
Once again thank you, keep up good work, TV is excellent.
Is there any new about wayland support....
Teamviewer 13 .... the new must have tool , it rocks on windows platform, there is no match
but when it comes to wayland support well the things get bad..... wayland is the default main display server and it will be the default for all the major linux distros.... simple no way to work tv ... switching to xorg for now... well no so good workaround...... can you please speed up the development for this major issue and support wayland...
We pray for that..... wayland situation and the teamviewer support for that is really something that makes our situation dificult, but we all have to acknowledge that tv stuff works hard to keep up and fix this issue, i know its hard to pay big bugs for the subscription and to expect to work flawlessly as it must be, but we all have to wait litle more i guess and lets hope the issues will be resolved soon.
The problem is upstream in Wayland, as far as I have understood.
I wish TeamViewer would show how great they are and just put money on the table to get the upstream fixed. Just hire Red Hat to take on the task, or Canonical.
Still waiting for that support
Ubuntu 0.18.10 : Teamviewer does the same error: Teamviewer not running on target computer.
Yes it doesm and xrdp is working and port 5938, 80 and 443 are open, so what your team is doing?
Just install Ubuntu + mate and see by yourself.
Running Teamviewer 15.4.4445 on Fedora 31.
Teamviewer hanging, crashing sometimes a connection possible, but most of the time not.
Until one figures out that Teamviewer does not run with Wayland.
It turns out that nowadays, the only reason for disabling Wayland is Teamviewer.
On Fedora 32 (beta) it's even worse. The Teamviewer application doesn't even work properly, the application is hanging. If it receives a remote connection, it just crashes straight away.
Teamviewer Support: Please add Wayland support. Otherwise most modern Linux users won't be able to use the software.
Now that Kooha and OBS Studio work well on Wayland I hope to see Teamviewer also working with Wayland. We are very fortunate that both applications are Opensource so that Teamviewer Linux Developers can see their code and find a way tor Teamviewer to work with Wayland.
Thank you for supporting Linux and an active development branch.
I just had an issue with connectiing _to_ kubuntu 22.214.171.124 with wayland activated. With X11 there was no issue. Issues experienced:
I tested _from_ kubuntu 22.10 with wayland and X11 as client AND from Windows 10 with the same results. On kubuntu with the latest stable and preview version (15.35.7), on Windows with the last available version from the website (on 10 nov 2022)
Only after switching the target system to X11, the issue was resolved.
