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.

Required steps:

# 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.
Required steps:

# 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".
