TeamViewer 12 will not install on 64 bit lubuntu 17.04

I am trying to install TeamViewer 12 on a freshly installed lubuntu 17.04 laptop.

I first tried to use the graphical installer. I get a windows with 2 button, one labeled "install" and the other labeled "Website". The Website button takes me to the TeamViewer website as expected. Pressing the install button does nothing.

I next tried installing from the command line. This did not either and produced these errors:

kenw@Ken-Linux-Pad:~/Downloads/TeamViewer$ sudo apt install team*.deb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package teamviewer_12.0.76279_i386.deb
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'teamviewer_12.0.76279_i386.deb'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'teamviewer_12.0.76279_i386.deb'

Could I get some help installing TeamViewer on lubuntu?

Thanks very much,

I Installed from the deb file downloaded from the Teawviewer website and I cannot get it running properly on Xubuntu.

When running, I cannot see any button to connect, upper menu items are not accesible, i.e., nothing happens when I click on it. Display dfialog messages are black. Cannot log in my account, tried several types to login, but it returns with a error.

tried to connect to another computer with its ID, but nothing happens.

Conclusion:  Teamviewer 12 IS COMPLETELY Broken for Xubuntu and Lubuntu.

This exact problem happened to me as well, and here is the solution I found that worked for me:

type sudo dpkg -i and then without pressing Enter. Add a space to the end. Then drag the file from Nautilus (the file browser) into the Terminal window. That will paste its full path. Then press Enter.
