uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

Debian Stable (Stretch 9.3)
TeamViewer 13.0.6634

Been trying to migrate from TV12. The first issue I had was the GUI not appearing. That issue was addressed with a post here. I eventually identified the problem as being the lack of a display manager on my system. I prefer for my machine to simply boot to terminal and, when I need a graphical environment, I start one with 'startx'

So the installed version worked for me after installing lightdm, but I'd like to get back to my previous arrangement (without lightdm). In that previous exchange, it was suggested that the uninstalled tar package should work without a display manager present.

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case yet. The behavior of the tar package seems to be the same as the installed package—failing to display anything without generating any kind of error. I made sure to run the check script:12-20-2017_01-33-51pm.png

Here's the output to terminal from manually installing qtquickcontrols through attempting to launch:12-20-2017_01-25-07pm.png

Thanks for your continued efforts to get this native Linux version up and working for everyone.

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

Dear J_Reis,

Thank you for your message.

I'll like to assist you in this case and try to reproduce the issue.

May you please let me know what desktop environment are you using? 

For example Gnome, KDE , LXDE, etc.

May you please check these dependencies if they are satisfied?

dpkg-query -l libc6 libdbus-1-3 libqt5gui5 libqt5widgets5 libqt5qml5 libqt5quick5 libqt5dbus5 libqt5webkit5 libqt5x11extras5 qtdeclarative5-qtquick2-plugin qml-module-qtquick2 qtdeclarative5-controls-plugin qml-module-qtquick-controls qtdeclarative5-dialogs-plugin qml-module-qtquick-dialogs qtdeclarative5-window-plugin qml-module-qtquick-window2 qtdeclarative5-quicklayouts-plugin qml-module-qtquick-layouts libqt5qml-graphicaleffects qml-module-qtgraphicaleffects

We are looking forward to your comments.

 

Best regards, 

Christian

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

Christian, I posted a similar request recently, you may want to have a look: https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Linux/Unable-to-run-TV13-without-display-manager-even-when-using...

I used ./tv-setup checklibs to check that all dependencies are installed.

Personally I don't use any display manager such as Gnome (GDM), I use Arch Linux running i3 window manager started directly using startx.

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

Thanks for following up! I don't use a desktop environment. I run a simple window manager (jwm) on top of X.

output of dpkg-query …

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

Just following up … any additional information available on this issue?

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

Most likely you are just missing Qt quick controls. Just install it manually. Unfortunately, checklibs does not detect that yet, as it is not a shared library (.so) but a bunch of .qml files. We'll fix that eventually...

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

It must be something else, Arch Linux package already defines qt5-quickcontrols as a dependency and thus I have it installed - no GUI appearing. I tried reinstalling, and I even tried to install the entire qt5 group (see here: https://www.archlinux.org/groups/x86_64/qt5/) and still no GUI.

 

Any other ideas to try?

Please try this:

# any libs missing?
ldd /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/TeamViewer | grep 'not found'
# run from inside Xorg (e.g. Xterm)
# any output? /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/TeamViewer

No results, the full output is under the spoiler.

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

Im having the same issue under Centos 7, with no sesion manager.

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

I am having the same issue, it would be great if there was a way to run TV13 without a display manager. Are there any updates or plans for this?

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

@cheflo, it will not happen this year. However, a part of TeamViewer is currently rewritten that will make it simpler to implement it in the future.

That's very unfortunate ... I need to find another solution.

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

But we can assume that it will be working without a session manager eventually? (So next year, etc.)

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

Looks like it.

This is still ongoing on Debian 9.5 with the deb package. It appears it won't run without a display manager.

Re: uninstalled tar package, running without display manager

I'm in the same boat as the others. Ubuntu 16.04 using i3wm as my window manager. No desktop/login manager. Is there a fix coming down the road?
