TeamViewer 13 & debian 9.3 - NO GUI

I post this bug because i look for solution in others message in this page, but those says problem solved but not  show how to solve.

I have debian Debian GNU/Linux 9.3 (stretch) installed in a 64 bits pc

I installed teamviewer_13.0.6634_amd64.deb

This is the problem

user@debianpc:~$ teamviewer

Init...
CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes
Checking setup...
Launching TeamViewer ...
Launching TeamViewer GUI ...

But nothing happens

next i run

user@debianpc:~$ teamviewer --info

TeamViewer 13.0.6634 (DEB)

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

teamviewerd status ● teamviewerd.service - TeamViewer remote control daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/teamviewerd.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: active (running) since Sun 2018-02-04 09:49:52 -05; 55s ago
Process: 26250 ExecStart=/opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/teamviewerd -d (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
Main PID: 26252 (teamviewerd)
Tasks: 17 (limit: 4915)
CGroup: /system.slice/teamviewerd.service
└─26252 /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/teamviewerd -d

I a follow the recomendation using

user@debianpc:~$ teamviewer --daemon restart

systemctl restart teamviewerd.service
==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.freedesktop.systemd1.manage-units ===
Se requiere autenticación para reiniciar 'teamviewerd.service'.
Authenticating as: root
Password:
==== AUTHENTICATION COMPLETE ===

and again the same, no GUI started when I run teamviewer command

I am using awesome window manager

user@debianpc:~$ awesome -v
awesome v4.0 (Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger)

Re: TeamViewer 13 & debian 9.3 - NO GUI

It seems very likely to me that you are experiencing the same issue I (and a number of others) encountered. The behaviour (no GUI) and the terminal output are the same.

If so, the source of the problem is that TV requires that the X session have been launched by a display manager. Since you mentioned using AwesomeWM I'm guessing there's at least some chance you aren't using a display manager. I was able to make TV work by installing lightDM and using it to start my window manager. TV then worked normally for me.

My own thread on this forum concerning the issue can be found --here--. You may note that I suggested TV add "display manager" as a dependency or at least add some kind of meaningful error message in order to prevent confusion, but this has not come to pass and people continue to show up here with this issue. For example: --here--.

I also started a thread about a solution that doesn't require a display manager, since one should not be neccessary for an app like TV. Another user expressed similar concerns --here--.

There's been limited follow up from TV personnel, who are no doubt busy with other issues. The more people we can get posting about the issue the more likely it is to be considered worth the resources to addess.

I've hijacked your thread a little bit, but hopefully some of the information above is helpful. If not you may want to run teamviewer ziplog (may require sudo) and post the results for the professionals to look at.
