Won't open after update to 12 on CentOS 7

Running CentOS 7.2 w/TV12 (gnome desktop)

I upgraded to TV 12 (RPM installer) from TV11 which was working fine on the host. While it appeared to upgrade without a problem, TeamVIewer will now no longer open (GUI). The service and daemon are both running, no errors, but the GUI never launches at all. I've restarted several times, removed TV entirely, reinstalled 11 (which now no longer works either), removed again, re-installed 12, same result.

I have 6 other identical servers which are running TeamViewer 11 and 12 without a problem. I logged a support case but I'm hoping someone has some insight to point me in the right direction here.

Re: Won't open after update to 12 on CentOS 7

Apparently using the application installer in CentOS 7 to remove or yum remove didn't cleanup everything from previous installs. In order to cleanup everything I had to follow the steps provided by support:

Below are the steps to complete:

- Open the Terminal
- Please run the command (without the quotations) " cd / " to go into the root directory. After this step, you shall see something similar to " user@ubuntu:/$ "
- Now once in the root directory please run the command to delete all associated files and folders (without the quotations) " sudo rm -rf /home/*/.local/share/teamviewer* /home/*/.config/teamviewer /opt/teamviewer; "
- Now all associated files and folders will be removed and its time to download and install TeamViewer from our website.

https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/linux.aspx

After these steps, everything is working now

Re: Won't open after update to 12

In case the TV log helps shed some light on what's going on.

Re: Won't open after update to 12 on CentOS 7

Interestingly, TV Quick Support runs and opens in GUI without a problem.

Re: Won't open after update to 12 on CentOS 7

Apparently using the application installer in CentOS 7 to remove or yum remove didn't cleanup everything from previous installs. In order to cleanup everything I had to follow the steps provided by support:

Below are the steps to complete:

- Open the Terminal
- Please run the command (without the quotations) " cd / " to go into the root directory. After this step, you shall see something similar to " user@ubuntu:/$ "
- Now once in the root directory please run the command to delete all associated files and folders (without the quotations) " sudo rm -rf /home/*/.local/share/teamviewer* /home/*/.config/teamviewer /opt/teamviewer; "
- Now all associated files and folders will be removed and its time to download and install TeamViewer from our website.

https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/linux.aspx

After these steps, everything is working now

Re: Won't open after update to 12 on CentOS 7

Well, I don't know in this case - But I just had the same problems in version 11. Instead of the quite drastically deletion of every TV file  from the system - I found the reason for my troubles in the /home/user/.config/teamviewer/client.conf

The parameter  [strng] FT_Start_Directories = "" was ridicolous long and I simply deleted anything between the " " as many of the directories were not even at my computer.

This solved the problem!

 

The reason I got into thinking this way was the preceeding TV sessions where I browsed a lot around and had many small sessions with the same customer. Maybe TV is not good at cleaning up config files when needed!

Brgds,
