This article applies to all TeamViewer users.
To install TeamViewer on CentOS 8 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, a few things have to be considered.
All RPM systems (including Fedora)
When installing a TeamViewer on a RPM system for the first time via command line, it might complain about a missing key to verify the signature of the package. You can either ignore / override this, or install our public key first. Download the public key file here and import the key by using the following command as an administrator:
rpm --import TeamViewer_Linux_PubKey.asc
Red Hat Enterprise Linux
On RHEL, TeamViewer can currently only be installed with a Workstation or Server subscription. With the RHEL Desktop subscription, not all dependencies (namely qt5-qtdeclarative) can be resolved.
Additionally, the epel repository needs to be enabled.
# RHEL 7 preparation
yum install ./epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
# RHEL 8 preparation
yum install ./epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm
# download TeamViewer Host for 64bit
# alternatively, download full client
# install the package (RHEL 7)
yum install ./teamviewer*.rpm
# install the package (RHEL 8)
yum --enablerepo epel-playground install ./teamviewer*.rpm
On CentOS 7, the epel repository is required.
# preparation: install epel-release
yum install epel-release
# download and install (example: TeamViewer Host, 64 bit)
yum install ./teamviewer-host*.rpm
📌Note: During the transition from 7.3 to 7.4 the cr repository was also required. In case some dependencies cannot be satisfied, you can try with
yum install ./teamviewer-host*.rpm --enablerepo="cr".
