Debian 8 headless setup problem (Teamviewer-host)

 

I have successfully installed teamviewer-host on a Rpi. However on a Beaglebone Black with Debian 8 I encounter the following messages when running setup (the user is root):

 :~# teamviewer setup
TeamViewer daemon is not running, setup cannot continue. Please activate the
TeamViewer daemon before invoking setup.

When I run daemon status or systemctl status teamviewerd everything seems to be fine:

:~# teamviewer daemon status

systemctl status teamviewerd.service
● teamviewerd.service - TeamViewer remote control daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/teamviewerd.service; enabled)
Active: active (running) since Sun 2017-10-08 10:12:58 UTC; 10min ago
Process: 7090 ExecStart=/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/teamviewerd -d (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
Main PID: 7092 (teamviewerd)
CGroup: /system.slice/teamviewerd.service
└─7092 /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/teamviewerd -d

When I start teamviewer (to launch teamviewer-host) the progamm fails to return, it does not even show the "Aborted" message. In the task list, but there is a double entry for teamviewer, which does not seem normal to me.

:~# teamviewer

Init...
CheckCPU: armv7l
Checking setup...
Launching TeamViewer ...
Launching TeamViewer GUI ...

=== does not return ===

ps -e

...

8892 pts/0 00:00:00 TeamViewer
8942 pts/0 00:00:00 TeamViewer
8998 pts/1 00:00:00 ps

Please help.

Re: Debian 8 headless setup problem (Teamviewer-host)

More details:

the Teamviewer ID is missing

:~# teamviewer info

TeamViewer 12.1.83885 (DEB)

TeamViewer ID:
Try restarting the TeamViewer daemon (e.g. teamviewer --daemon restart)

teamviewerd status ● teamviewerd.service - TeamViewer remote control daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/teamviewerd.service; enabled)
Active: active (running) since Sun 2017-10-08 18:29:21 UTC; 3s ago
Process: 3514 ExecStart=/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/teamviewerd -d (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

CGroup: /system.slice/teamviewerd.service
└─3516 /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/teamviewerd -d

"teamviewer license" dies when called

I then found the logfile and compare it to the Rpi log. Things go wrong here:

The reason may be that there is no autologin present on Debian 8, but this goes beyond my skills.
