Re: non-installed TAR package, Arch, Gentoo

Hi.

I use Ubuntu 16.04 and I am frustrated.

The toolbar do not appear and I cannot login on my Windows hosts because I cannot do a CRTL + ALT + DEL.

The problem is that I am not a BETA user, to test it. I need a final version working. I have aquire it it for working purpose, not to be a BETA tester.

Do you have the solution? All Ive tried not worked.

Thank you.

Andre

no CTRL+ALT+DEL = bad joke

Not being able to send CTRL+ALT+DEL is really a bad joke. This way I can't use TV13 at all. I feel kind of stupid now having bought the new license upfront. Please give us anythind to unlock access to Windows systems! Thx

Re: no CTRL+ALT+DEL = bad joke

Read the previous post! This is a preview version, if you need this feature install a Windows virtual machine (under virtualbox/vmware/qemu ecc) and install a windows version of teamviewer else return to version 12

Re: [Update] TeamViewer 13

The new release runs fast and smoothly on Debian Testing + KDE.

I agree with others, though, that the ability to send Ctrl+Alt+Del should be top priority on the missing feature list.

Hope we'll get the old toolbar back soon, as I need to switch between different monitors of the remote system, too.

Anyway, I'm very pleased to see that Teamviewer does not forget about the Linux users! Thanks for that!

Ctrl+Alt+Del update

Dear @andrearvs, @exactt@Dusan, @Skyr,

we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by missing Ctrl+Alt+Del..
I have to admit we completely underestimated the demand for this little detail, just as much as we overestimated the demand for Wayland.
That's why we do this community thing and specifically ask you in the survey which features matter most to you.

We have already decided to do an extraordinary, intermediate update soon, bringing Ctrl+Alt+Del back. A few other details might also see minor improvement.
We are really commited to straighten this out. My word on it.

Daniel

P.S.: @Dusan, I'm not certain what you mean by how to downgrade, but you can always get older versions here. If that doesn't answer you question, I'd recommend to call our support hotline or PM me. Again, sorry for the rough transition.

Re: Ctrl+Alt+Del update

Yep need that top toolbar "Ctrl+Alt+Del, Restart, File Upload & Multiple Monitors" are what I use all day long. I LOVE NOT seeing recent connections! But with all the computers looking like they are online LOL I have no idea which ones are on or off. LOL Until today I have been running 13 in VM (VB) Windows. It's a work around not the best but it works. Smiley Sad

Thanks for all the great work so glad to see it on native Linux! I'm using Xubuntu 16.04 64bit with lots of tweaks. I don't see any text problems, no connection problems, logged right in and logged right on. Couldn't do anything no Ctrl+Alt+Del or file upload LOL went back the VM.

Not disappointed I upgraded my license at all! I will be waiting happily for the next update!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Re: [Update] TeamViewer 13

The update look promising. Resizing seems much less buggy. Also the "Del" key works (after so many years). Haven't tried the numbers on Mac machines (which were a PITA) yet.

It seems the arrow keys + home/end don't work (most of them convert to typing a "q")

Missing things for me :

  • Ability to switch between my clients' screens
  • Right click in the contacts list to send an "invitation" to my clients so they only have to click "accept" rather than spelling passwords (difficult for some non-english users). Also ability to edit a computer's properties or to add a new one.

Haven't tested that horrible behaviour in TV12 where it would "steal" the sound/microphone and make skype+TV sessions impossible (sound too low or continuous echo/larsen).

Thanks for working on a native solution for us Linux users and keep up the good work.

Gentoo: speaking of inofficial ports, I was contacted by a Gentoo maintainer and expect they'll have TV13 package soon.

Re: [Update] TeamViewer 13

It does not work with dark themes already.

Here is a screenshot with the Adapta theme on KDE:

And so it looks with Adapta-Nokto (Dark theme):

As you can see, there is some text "missing". But it's not missing, I guess it just has a hardcoded color.

Re: [Update] TeamViewer 13

Hey @Bleuzen, thanks for the pointer!
@ndit, are you also on a dark theme? (Which?)

This should be an easy fix.

Re: [Update] TeamViewer 13

Working good for me on Kubuntu 17.10 only gripe is no toolbar to do things like file transfer. I actually prefer the new Qt interface a lot and not having buttons everywhere near the main interface, but I would prefer some way to show a toolbar when I do need to transfer files.

Re: [Update] TeamViewer 13

Beside the CTRL+ALT+ENTF musthave thing I really need three further things to work seriously with TV13 on Linux:

  1. Searchable Computer&Contact List: With over 200 Hosts you really need to search the list with keywords or you need wasted minutes to find the correct host
  2. The name of the connected host in the window title: If you have several parallel sessions open and only see "TeamViewer <3>", "TeamViewer <4>", "TeamViewer <5>" in the title you absolutley lost in space. "where I am?"
  3. Filetransfer is important. Not as important as the other points (at least for me) but indeed somewhat important

I hope the other points gets serious attention too because TV13 currently is really unuseable for me on Linux.

Re: [Update] TeamViewer 13

@mfernauThe window title should be the simplest, can be done very soon.
Searchable C&C I expect for Q1 2018.
Filetransfer: possible for Q1, but don't pin me down to that.
