TeamViewer is not working after automatic installation of kernel in Ubuntu

I am using Teamviewer 14 in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 Bit OS. Just now, the OS popped up with some updates and it has updated the kernel i.e., `linux-image` which I was using without any issues. Please note that Teamviewer 14 was working on this kernel with no issues. However, after the update, Teamviewer 14 stopped working. Below are the logs-

ravi@home:~/.local/share/teamviewer14/logfiles$ ll

CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes

I tried installing Linux home 3.13.0-164-generic but Teamviewer 14 still did not work. Below are the details of the current kernel-

ravi@home:~$ uname -a
Linux home 3.16.0-77-generic #99~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 28 19:17:10 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I am wondering how do make TeamViewer 14 working?

As suggested here https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/TeamViewer-General/14-1-3399-UI-not-working-in-Ubuntu-14-04/m-p/...

The following workaround worked for me

sudo apt-get install teamviewer=14.0.14470

Re: TeamViewer is not working after automatic installation of kernel in Ubuntu

I'm using Linux Lite 2.8 (Ubuntu 14.04LTS) and after the automatic updates via sudo apt-get update, TeamViewer no longer worked.  The prior version 13 worked just fine.  I ended up purging out all of my TeamViewer installations and then installed version 13 and it worked just fine again.  Then I upgraded to the latest version and nothing worked except the icon in the task bar, but nothing inside of it worked.

I followed your suggestion to Downgrade using sudo apt-get install teamviewer=14.0.14470 and now everything works great!

Thanks for the great Technote!
