How to install TeamViewer on a Linux system with no graphical user interface

I am tryiing  to install teamviewer on an embedded Ubuntu system that will eventually have no GUI, but it currently has a GUI for testing. I got teamviewer installed, but to use it I need access to the GUI to get the ID and password. I also can not find how to set it up for headless operation , which is a must. Can anyone help me?

Is there any reason why you wouldn't use ssh?

TeamViewer headless: Connect to Linux systems with no graphical user interface

Hi DaveP,

the following commands (run as root) should get you started:

teamviewer help
teamviewer setup
teamviewer passwd
teamviewer info

P.S.: We have just release an update! New release of the TeamViewer Host for Linux (v12.0.78433)
