TeamViewer HUGE 14 in Linux :(


The only thing missing in Linux was tabbed windows. Then I upgrade to 14 and OMG I get this HUGE HUGE WASTE OF DAM SPACE almost half the dam screen!!!

Do you people even read the stuff the PAYING users write?
2. NO ONE WANTS your FORCED MONSTER SIZED WINDOW! Let us choose the look or resize the god awful monster window!
3. Let older versions overwrite newer versions that way when some HORRIBLE GUI like this comes out I can roll all the computers back remotely!!!

I liked my Linux version so much better then winblows because of the nice 2inch wide strip in the side of screen 1. Now this CRAZY insane size that's just STUPID that's up 44/46% of my 40 inch screen! CHANGE IT BACK! LET US TURN OFF ALL THAT WORTHLESS JUNK ON THE SIDE I NEVER USE! Let us resize it to a SMALL S-T-R-I-P It's to dam big!

So disappointed in this version in Linux :( and I'm stuck with it!

On Ubuntu 18.04 (Awesome version, minimalist install) it crashes often.  Today it has been after every connection.

On 14.04 it crashes often as well.

Yep Xubuntu 18.04 (all updates done)
Is crashing as soon as it connects to even one computer. :( So I need to work in Winblows 10 or Winblows 8 in VM.

Why SO HUGE and no tabbed windows :( Linux version was perfect now it's HUGE and broken.

Later tonight I will wipe the install out and to a clean install of 14 and see if that helps.

General rule "If it's not broken don't fix it" :)

Re: TeamViewer HUGE 14 in Linux :(

Any chance the most expensive software I own may start working again?

I use all three of my installs/uses on ONE Computer. That is still **bleep** thing if I'm out I can't help any of my customers! Until I get back to my ONE computer.

Now I'm forced into using WINBLOWS 10 or Windows 8 in VM to do my work! 14 does NOT WORK in Linux! And there is no way to roll-back remotely. (Can't connect to 13 or 14 from 12)

Like another post I saw I would just go back to 12 in wine. I liked having the native 13 in Linux, I had hoped that 14 would bring tabbed windows. But nope no tabs, just some huge awful looking thing that crashes every 30 seconds! Thank GOD for "DWS" 100% free and works in Linux! I feel guilty paying TeamViewer and using the free one!

Re: TeamViewer HUGE 14 in Linux :(

Wiped TeamViewer out, changed my Xubuntu to a SSD, reinstalled TV 14 still random crashing. I did get 4 computers open all at once! LOL So worthless! As soon as a started the SUPER slow file transfer on one all four closed and TV crashed again. :(

I'm just going to use DWS super SLOW uploads just like TV uploads the last few months. But DWS works 100% of the time less features but 100% free.
