I am able to establish a connection on my Debian 9 PC via Teamviewer 12, and I see the login screen. After I enter my credentials the screen gets stuck on the login screen. If I exit the session and try to establish a new session I get a black screen.
I am running the default Gnome Display Manager.
Thank you for contacting TeamViewer.
To be able to troubleshoot your issue. Are you using Host version or Full version?
We are looking forward to your comments.
Did this ever get resolved? I am experiencing the same issue (I believe) with my Debian instance.
When I TeamViewer in when I am logged in I get the screen the user sees; however, when I Teamviewer in when the user is logged out I only get the black screen.
no, i've not solved, but i've not tried any more
i think it's something related with dm: lightdm/gdm etc, some works, others not
Soooo... after digging on the web I have found another similar issue.
I am launching Teamviewer on a headless system. It looks like Teamviewer won't launch if the system doesn't have a monitor detected.
The workaround I discovered was to install an HDMI "dummy" plug. I am going to try it over the weekend and we will see if it works!
Here is the board I found the supposed solution on if anyone finds themselves in a similar situation.
I should note that when a monitor was plugged in I was able to reach the machine without any issue.
