Is teamviewer info command supposed to be run as root?

Hi,

Running the command "teamviewer info" from terminal in my Ubuntu 16 installation (teamviewer v. 15.10.5) I get the following error:

grep: /opt/teamviewer/config/global.conf: Permission denied
TeamViewer ID:
Try restarting the TeamViewer daemon (e.g. teamviewer --daemon restart)

I already tried to restart teamviewer daemon..

Is this correct ? I mean.. is the command supposed to be run as root?

Yes. Assuming that your user is adequately configured in /etc/sudoers, preface it with sudo.
