Teamviewer 13 not connecting in Ubuntu 18.04 Login Screen

I installed Ubuntu 18.04, and I noticed that in the Login Screen Teamviewer (teamviewer_13.1.3026_amd64) is not connecting.

However, when I log in then Im able to use Teamviewer.

I didn't have this issue with Ubuntu 16.04 and teamviewer_13.1.3026_amd64.

I'm having the same issue. I can log in, but won't connect to host.

I get a similar issue. After reboot, I cannot connect via Teamviewer.

Following manual login, Teamviewer is able to connect at the login screen until the next reboot.

Same here. On Ubuntu 18.04 bootup, Teamviewer 13 does not start. Starts after login.

<TL;DR>

sudo gedit /etc/gdm3/custom.conf

Uncomment this line in custom.conf file:

WaylandEnable=false

and Reboot.

 

<TL;KH> (Know How)

For some reason B E A V E R word is not allowed to post, it turns it into bionic-**bleep**-linux

Though I'm not sure what a Wayland Display Server is I found a workaround/solution in these pages.

How-to-install-teamviewer-on-ubuntu-18-04-bionic-linux

"If you see the warning message Wayland Detected your TeamViewer version does not fully support Wayland display server yet. As message also suggests, this is only troublesome in case you need to establish incoming connection from another TeamViewer client. If this is your case you need to disable wayland and enable Xorg display server before you can accept incoming transmissions."

and workaround is here:

Hi there, thanks for the hint. I removed beaver from the filter.

Hi, 

Links are 404 because Teamviewer forum didn't allow me to write full urls as in their content have beaver word.

https:// linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-teamviewer-on-ubuntu-18-04-bionic-**bleep**-linux
Substitute the **bleep** by beaver word.

I can confirm with TeamViewer 14 and Ubuntu 18.10 that this works
