Install on headless Debian 10 (VPS)


I have to compare different remote desktop solutions from Windows to Debian server (headless).

For the tests, I use a Debian 10 VPS with LXDE as GUI.

I can successfully access it with Windows Terminal Server from Windows 8.1 (xrdp) + Open VPN and use Firefox.

I can successfully access it with X2go + SSH tunnel and use Firefox.

Alas, I have  big problems with TeamViewer 15.9.4 x86_64bit ! :o(

Under an SSH session, I've done, as root:


# wget
# apt-get install ./teamviewer_amd64.deb

# reboot

# /usr/bin/teamviewer info

TeamViewer 15.9.5 (DEB)

"Unknown reason" : that's very helpful ! :(

I'm sure the password is good: it's the same I used to login to this forum.

What is this  "Unknown reason"  ? How can I solve the problem ?

I can give you any useful additional info.

I hope someone will help me so I won't be sad to remove Teamviewer from the list of potential nice solutions for remote desktop.
