TV Host installation / starting difficulty, Rasp Pi

Installed like this: sudo dpkg -i ./teamviewer-host_13.0.5641_armhf.deb

There were some problems which I thought were missing dependencies, so I next did

sudo apt-get install -f

and it goes and removes teamviewer.

I have tried removing the package and installing a couple different ways, because, there are a few different ways recommended. One of the ways lists the command apt which doesn't work, even though the context was installation under Raspbian. 

I know it can be installed because I did it on a Pi 3 last week, but that one has been decommissioned, and I'm trying to install it on a Pi 2 now. Here is the output of a troubleshooting file:

cat /tmp/info.log

TeamViewer 13.0.5641 (DEB)

TeamViewer ID:
Try restarting the TeamViewer daemon (e.g. teamviewer --daemon restart)

teamviewerd status n/a (error)

--------------- The Raspberry Pi is headless, only accessed via local ssh.  Someone please help, I need to get to this remotely when I'm away from the local network.

Thank you!   --MP

### It uninstalls teamviewer-host???

Above are the results of both commands! I don't understand why it appears to have uninstalled tv-h.  Thank you.

Re: TV Host installation / starting difficulty, Rasp Pi

Dear MPotamia,

Thank you for your feedback.

The reason that you're having this issue is that the Rasbian 7 doesn't include the package versions needed.

To be able to get the newest packages for your version it's recommended to update your distro to the newest one.

Is it possible for you to use the latest Raspbian version?

Hope this solution works for you.

 

Best regards,

Christian
