How to install TeamViewer on a Linux system with no graphical user interface
To install TeamViewer on a headless Linux system (without a graphical user interface), download the installation file of the TeamViewer full version for Linux either directly on the Linux system via a link or by calling it from a USB stick.
The installation for both use cases is described below.
Note: The installation of TeamViewer on a headless Linux system requires root rights.
To install TeamViewer on a headless Linux system via a link, follow these steps:
Call up the path of an internally accessible installation file (.rpm/.deb) or an installation file on our website (https://www.teamviewer.com/download/linux/) in the Terminal with the wget command. Make sure that you use the installation file of the full version.
Start the installation.
Run the command “teamviewer setup” after the installation is completed.
Accept the end-user license agreement.
Enter the login credentials for your TeamViewer account. This will assign the Linux device to your account and set up unattended access.
A group in your Computers & Contacts list will be shown. The device is added to this group and can later be moved within the Computers & Contacts list.
Confirm the assignment.
The device appears in your Computers & Contacts list. Connect with a double-click. During a session, a TeamViewer icon appears in the top right corner on the remote device.
Via USB stick
Note: The used USB stick must be mounted before installation.
