Scripted deployment (ansible)

Hi all,

I need to deploy teamviewer silently on linux hosts (Ubuntu 18.04). The steps I used are:

1. Add repository: "deb [arch=amd64] http://linux.teamviewer.com/deb stable main"

2. Add repository key : https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/signature/TeamViewer2017.asc

3. Install : apt update && apt install teamviewer

4. start "teamviewer setup", and the result is:

Device is not assigned to an account. Please run interactive setup.

What am I doing wrong?

What is the solution to deploy on Linux silently ?

Thank you in advance for you answers...

Re: Scripted deployment (ansible)

I tried to uninstall all traces of Teamviewer on the test machine:

# apt remove --auto-remove --purge teamviewer -yqq
# rm -rf \
/etc/teamviewer* \
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/teamviewer*.list* \
/var/log/teamviewer* \
\
/root/.config/teamviewer* \
/home/*/.config/teamviewer* \
/var/lib/lightdm/.config/teamviewer* \
/export/home/*/.config/teamviewer* \
\
/root/.local/share/teamviewer* \
/home/*/.local/share/teamviewer* \
/var/lib/lightdm/.local/share/teamviewer* \
/export/home/*/.local/share/teamviewer* \

Same results, but if I reboot the test machine, it works as expected !!

I have the same issue trying to install TV Host 15 on an ARMv7 device running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I was able to download and install TV Host version 14 for Debian/ARM, and that works.
