TeamViewer for Linux requires a Linux 2.6.27 kernel and GLIBC 2.17. Qt 5.6 is recommended for the best experience. Therefore, the following operating systems are supported:
For a transitional period, Qt 5.2 is still supported, allowing installation on Debian 8 and Ubuntu 14.04.
x86 64 bit: amd64 (Intel 64/EM64T)
x86 32 bit: SSE2
armv7 32 bit: armv7 hardfloat (Raspberry Pi 2+)
Choose your package
For PC, pick the 64-bit (or 32-bit) package according to your system. If in doubt, run
uname. On a 64-bit system,
uname -m will print
For Raspberry Pi, pick the ARM package.
Usually, you can install the package by double-clicking or right-clicking on it and select the package manager, e.g. Open with software installation, Open with GDebi package installer, Open with Ubuntu Software Center, or Open with QApt package installer.
If you prefer the command line, just run
# for DEB packages:
apt install ./teamviewer_13.x.yyy_[arch].deb
apt install ./teamviewer-host_13.x.yyy_[arch].deb
# for RPM packages (use dnf if yum is not available):
yum install ./teamviewer_13.x.yyy.[arch].rpm
yum install ./teamviewer-host_13.x.yyy.[arch].rpm
# for SUSE:
zypper install ./teamviewer-suse_13.x.yyy.[arch].rpm
zypper install ./teamviewer-host-suse_13.x.yyy.[arch].rpm
