Teamviewer GUI not starting anymore

I have version 12.0.85001-6 installed on Manjaro 17.05

For some reason the teamviewer program is not starting at all.

If I try running in a terminal, I can see the following - then nothing happens at all.

[adminuser@adminuser-pc ~]$ teamviewer

Init...
CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes
Checking setup...
Launching TeamViewer ...
Launching TeamViewer GUI ...
[adminuser@adminuser-pc ~]$

I've tried this on 2 machines both running the same os and latest version of teamviewer.

It used to work fine, but same problem on both machines of it not starting at all.

Any ideas how to resolve?

Thanks

Re: Teamviewer GUI not starting anymore

btw, netstat shows following:

[adminuser@adminuser-pc ~]$ sudo netstat -ntap | grep teamviewer
[sudo] password for adminuser:
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:5939 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 894/teamviewerd
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:5939 127.0.0.1:43831 ESTABLISHED 894/teamviewerd

[adminuser@adminuser-pc ~]$

also tried solution below and the offending line doesn't exist in my client.conf file

Re: Teamviewer GUI not starting anymore

I am running on Arch Linux and see similar behaviour.  

After trying to launch the gui I see the following with ps -ef | grep teamv

root 16684 1 0 16:23 ? 00:00:00 /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/teamviewerd -d
john 22282 20862 0 16:31 tty2 00:00:00 [TeamViewer.exe] <defunct>
john 22395 1 0 16:31 ? 00:00:00 /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/wine/bin/wineserver
john 22432 22282 98 16:31 tty2 00:02:58 /opt/teamviewer//tv_bin/TVGuiSlave.64 31 1

If I run from the command line there is no additional information

journalctl -f shows

Re: Teamviewer GUI not starting anymore

I noticed other users here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/teamviewer/  have solved the problem.  Seems to be to do with lib32freetype2.  Downgrading the package allowed teamviewer to work for me.

Re: Teamviewer GUI not starting anymore

Debian buster
same problem the GUI didn't appear and downgrading libfreetype6 solved it. So not version  2.8.1-0.1 but 2.8-0.2 works.
Don't forget to mark package to hold that version.

Try to look at the log files if there is something interesting usually /var/log/teamviewer1* or :/opt/teamviewer/logfiles/

Re: Teamviewer GUI not starting anymore

I found an easy way to install teamviewer, without manually changing all the library versions in the path. It's not a perfect solution, (it uses Nix, an alternative package manager), but it works:

First, install nix:

curl https://nixos.org/nix/install | sh

then enable the unfree repositories

echo "{ allowUnfree = true; }" > ~/.config/nixpkgs/config.nix

install teamviewer

nix-env -iA nixpkgs.teamviewer

then, run the daemon as root

sudo -E env "PATH=$PATH" teamviewerd

and start the client

teamviewer

Please, note that you need to run these two last command each time you reboot, because the daemon will NOT be started automatically.

Re: Teamviewer GUI not starting anymore

I solved this by entering the following four commands:

sudo teamviewer daemon restart

sudo teamviewer daemon disable

sudo teamviewer daemon enable

teamviewer

Re: Teamviewer GUI not starting anymore

I had exactly the same issue.

This is due to a 'gui.lock' file. Removing this lock file solved the issue. Path of this file is:

/var/log/teamviewer14/username/gui.lock
