First impression: black screen

This is the first time I use teamviewer. I installed teamviewer 12 on my Linux PC (Fedora 25) and my Chromebook. I can connect from my Chromebook to my Linux PC and am even able to do some actions (send a message, use the chat).

But the screen on the Chromebook remains black. So I cannot use this application.

Re: First impression: black screen

I found the reason. Fedora 25 normally uses Wayland. It seems that TeamViewer does not support Wayland.

If I run my session under X instead of Wayland it works.

So my question is: when will TeamViewer support Wayland?

Also I found that X is only necessary on server side. The client may use Wayland.

Same problem here. It seems there is now way getting Wayland to work with teamviewer right now (assuming wayland runs on server side).....unfortunately.
