Installed the latest 15.3.2682 deb version. It installs but never opens. It shows a breathing icon on my launcher when forced to open and then disappers afterwards without opening teamviewer gui.
I just wanted to make known (probably you know it) that in Linux exist 2 ways to install the TeamViewer app.
The first is by following the steps of this post.
The second from the Terminal, by following these steps:
To download TeamViewer: Open your terminal and download the latest TeamViewer .deb package with the following wget command:
To Install TeamViewer .deb package: By using the following command as a user with sudo privileges:
sudo apt install ./teamviewer_amd64.deb
At the prompt Do you want to continue? [Y / n], type Y to continue the installation
I hope this to solve it for you
Thanks for your reply. I have teamviewer installed, it just does not open. The issue I am facing is very similar to this post: https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Linux/Teamviewer-12-don-t-show-GUI-on-Ubuntu-16-04/m-p/4216
Yes, I read it, but I suggest to uninstall it and reinstall it once again for begin.
Maybe it sounds stupid, but may solve it!
I did that with no avail. I followed the solution in this post:
The second solution of the post you linked, it says with more words to do the steps that I wrote at the beginning, with some steps more, to delete the folder in the ~\.local\share\ folder, then update ubuntu, and reinstall TeamViewer.
To update Ubuntu (I believe you know it) run from Terminal the command sudo apt-get update
Have you tried this?
try to re-read the question posted on the askubuntu portal that you have also reported. There is an update right under the initial request: it points to an interesting document that talks about a generalized problem of the Ubuntu 16.04 distribution with third-party software, not just TeamViewer.
It would seem that a workaround exists for this problem, but I personally advise you not to undertake it if you have the alternative of being able to update the system to the latest version of Ubuntu 19.10 or wait for 20.04.
