"not owned by you"

I just moved a VM to another HDD.

Teamviewer worked fine before, now I get error messages telling me that(translated from German, see below)

"chmod: Setting rights for ...(path), not allowed

mkdir: Directory ... can't be created

wine: (path) is not owned by you

Does someone have an idea what I can do?

This is a server instance, so no GUI.

Thank you very much!

Re: "not owned by you"

Remote diagnoses are difficult, but i think what you should do is:

  • manually delete the stated folders
  • either run "teamviewer passwd XYZ" (to set a new password)
  • or run "teamviewer setup" (to [re]assign it to your account, so you can connect without password from your partnerlist.

Re-installing usually has absolutely no effect - except of course, something really stupid happened... However, if you get a password promt when connecting, I'd say the installation is intact.

Re: "not owned by you"

I did all the steps (deleting, setting password, running setup for authorization) and it's back to normal now.

Thank you very much for your help!

Re: "not owned by you"

I'm uncertain how you intend to use TeamViewer. If you are using the headless mode, you never need to run "teamviewer" directly. This attemps to start the graphical user interface, which is not possible if you have "no GUI", as you state.

In that case, you would just need the commands listed by "teamviewer help". As you supposedly run "teamviewer setup" before, there's not really anything you need to do. Get the ID with "info", set a new password with "passwd" or try to restart the daemon if you think there's something wrong: "teamviewer daemon restart".

By the way, if by "moved to another HDD" you mean a different machine: you should not do that. Always install it fresh. You can attempt to fix the access problems by deleting the mentioned folders, (.config/teamviewer and .local/share/teamviewer). They should be recreated.

Re: "not owned by you"

This helps at least a bit.

After moving the VMs I had to authorize each one with Teamviewer, again.

And so I thought I had to run TV on the shell to start that process.

If I try to access the ID "info" returns, I can enter a password which seems to be wrong but probably only because the client is not yet authorized.

Is there a way to start this from the shell or shall I remove the remove the folders, un-install TV and re-install it again?

Thank you very much for your help!
