[Update] TeamViewer Host on RedHat and CentOS

Dear RedHat and CentOS users,

as promised in [Update] RPM repository and file transfer, here is a little update for RHEL and CentOS.

To install TeamViewer Host on CentOS 7 and RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.4,
a few things have to be considered:

On RHEL, TeamViewer can currently only be installed with a Workstation or Server subscription. With the RHEL Desktop subscription, not all dependencies (namely qt5-qtdeclarative) can be resolved.
Additionally, the epel repository needs to be enabled.

Required steps:

wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
# assuming 64bit Workstation wget https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/teamviewer-host.x86_64.rpm yum install ./epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm # must be installed first yum install ./teamviewer-host*.rpm

 

On CentOS 7, the epel repository is required.
As CentOS is currently transitioning to 7.4 packages, the cr  repository is also required (as of today). This might change in the weeks to come.

Required steps:

                                                        # assuming 64bit Workstation
wget https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/teamviewer-host.x86_64.rpm
yum install epel-release # must be installed first yum install ./teamviewer-host*.rpm --enablerepo="cr" # as of today yum install ./teamviewer-host*.rpm # in general

 

All the best,
Daniel
