Installation Error on Ubuntu 17.04

Hi, I'm trying to install teamviewer on ubuntu 17.04.

To do that I've downloaded teamviewer_12.0.76279_i386.deb, I launch it but when I click on install button nothing happen.

So by command line I've tried the following command:

apt install /teamviewer_12.0.76279_i386.deb

But the result was an error: unsupported file given on command line

What's wrong??

Re: Installation Error on Ubuntu 17.04

Dear Christian,

Apologies for the delay. Attached is the screnshot.

While running the first command, I got this, "Errors were encountered while processing:
 teamviewer:i386". And while running the second I got,  "Unpacking libpng12-0:i386 (1.2.54-1ubuntu1) over (1.2.50-2+deb8u3) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite shared '/usr/share/doc/libpng12-0/KNOWNBUG', which is different from other instances of package libpng12-0:i386
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.23-0ubuntu9) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
 /var/cache/apt/archives/libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)"

Best,
