Dear dlouis,

Thank you for your post.

In order to make sure we are able to understand your issue, we need more information. 

What version of TeamViewer are you using Full, Host, or Portable? is it the latest build? 

As today, latest versions are

  • Full - v12.0.76279
  • Host - v12.0.78433

What run level do you use to start your system?

Do you start TeamViewer from a virtual X-Server?

Do you switch between VTs and GUI?

We are looking forward to your comments.

Have a great day!


Best regards,

Before you run TeamViewer run Terminal and elevate to Root User with the following command.. sudo teamviewer daemon restart [enter] and when complete type exit [enter] and then exit [enter] again.

Then run TeamViewer as you would normally and it should caputre the Internet. Things in Camp TeamViewer for Linux are not so good anymore and the developers do not care about us linux users.
