I had this connection problem for many months on Ubuntu 16.04. After each OS update, I got the error on Teamviewer and I was unable to use it. I've done the chmod trick and it worked only one time. On my last Ubuntu update and reboot, nothing was able to get Teamviewer back. After checking the Teamviewer 'wine' directory, I saw that it was using the version 1.6, which isn't the last release. I then checked the net and installed Wine 1.8 (http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2015/12/install-wine-1-8-stable-new-ppa/). To make it work with Teamviewer, I simply renamed all bins of /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/wine/bin and created symlinks to the new bins in /usr/bin. I've done the same thing with libwine.so.1.0 and wine directory of /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/wine/lib directory to link them to the 32bit version of Wine 1.8 in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu. So here are the new links: me@zpc:~/$ ls -l /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/wine/bin total 408 lrwxrwxrwx 1 me me 13 Feb 22 10:42 wine -> /usr/bin/wine -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9816 Nov 28 09:30 wine.orig lrwxrwxrwx 1 me me 23 Feb 22 10:43 wine-preloader -> /usr/bin/wine-preloader -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12944 Nov 28 09:30 wine-preloader.orig lrwxrwxrwx 1 me me 19 Feb 22 10:43 wineserver -> /usr/bin/wineserver -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 387280 Nov 28 09:30 wineserver.orig me@zpc:~/$ ls -l /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/wine/lib total 1672 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Nov 28 09:30 libwine.so -> libwine.so.1.0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Nov 28 09:30 libwine.so.1 -> libwine.so.1.0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 me me 38 Feb 22 10:59 libwine.so.1.0 -> /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libwine.so.1.0 -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1698324 Nov 28 09:30 libwine.so.1.0.orig lrwxrwxrwx 1 me me 29 Feb 22 10:59 wine -> /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine/ drwxrwxrwx 3 root root 12288 Feb 22 10:56 wine.orig I was then able to start TeamViewer with the new wine version using: sudo teamviewer daemon start To shutdown Teamviewer, run "sudo teamviewer daemon stop" and ensure that there is no TeamViewer processes running using "ps aux | grep tv". Kill them before restart if some are still running. Works for me. I hope it'll work for you too!
