"Failed to start teamviewerd.service: Unit teamviewerd.service is masked." Problem

Hey,

I installed the Teamviewer 12 on my linux machine (Kali Linux) and when i started the daemon I recieved this output:

Spoiler
teamviewer --daemon start

systemctl start teamviewerd.service
Failed to start teamviewerd.service: Unit teamviewerd.service is masked.
fail

 Can someone help me?

PS: I have the logs too so if someone wants to see what is the problem I can provide a link for a download.

I think I found the solution of the problem.

Apperantly I needed to use the systemctl unmask command which as a result i needed to re-in
stall the whole program and after that it works normally.
