Several Bugs on Armbian and Orange Pi Zero

I had installed TeamViewer on my system and it's not working. I've installed it by just

sudo apt-get install teamviewer-host

Got ID:

cat /etc/teamviewer/global.conf | grep ClientID

But couldn't connect from my PC to that ID with the message "TeamViewer is not launched on the computer with that ID"

There's also "TeamViewer host 14" sub-menue which after launch gives me another invalid ID.
Also, there's mismatch keyboard input - when I try to input like "abcd" I got another symbols in fields. Also, after some actions in Settings menu, all the system got freezed with 100% of load on processor

My system is based on "ARMBIAN 5.65 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.14.84-sunxi"

Re: Several Bugs on Armbian and Orange Pi Zero


I have exactly those same problems with my TeamViewer Host on Armbian 5.68 Ubuntu Bionic with kernel 4.19.13. Had  the same problems even earlier last year with a different armhf setup. I gave it up that time. But I really would like to make it working now.

Any help is much appreciated.

How it is possible that

sudo teamviewer setup

gives me this output

TeamViewer daemon is not running, setup cannot continue. Please activate the TeamViewer daemon before invoking setup.

when at the same time

teamviewer info

gives me the following

teamviewerd status                   ● teamviewerd.service - TeamViewer remote control daemon

System is armhf. TV version is 14.1.3399  (TAR_IN). But it does exactly the same with version 12x.

Any ideas out there?
