"Segmentation fault: error

"Segmentation fault" bug

Hi all,

I have encountered an error when running teamviewer heedlessly that upon further research, appears to be a bug, according to this post, but was fixed. The exact output received is this:


Please enter your e-mail / username: someusrnm@somedomainname.somedomainextension

Please enter your password:

Initiating sign in

Segmentation fault

I have installed this through the tarball on Manjaro Linux, which is based on Arch Linux.

Am I doing something wrong or has the bug arisen again?

I also have the same fault on Ubuntu 18.10. Fresh install and still encountered the same issue. Issue happens when run with root account or sudo account. sudo teamviewer setup Enter username Enter Password "Initiating sign in" "Segmentation error" Then it kicks you out of the application and back to the command line.

Re: "Segmentation fault: error

I'm using openSUSE and have had TV installed for about a month now. I started getting this error for the first time out-of-the-blue today - about 3 times within a short period of time.

I closed TeamViewer, restarted it, and the error came up again. Then I:

  1. Closed TeamViewer
  2. Terminated the teamviewerd process/service
  3. Restarted the teamviewerd service (sudo systemctl start teamviewerd.service)
  4. Started TeamViewer

Since then the error hasn't reoccurred, which implies the issue is with something going wrong with the teamviewerd service.
