Go to teamviewer-beta for beta/preview releases

(unless teamviewer messes it up again like with 12->13, where 12 was abandoned)

teamviewer 13 requires a desktop environment or login with lightdm etc, with startx it won't work, the staff of teamviewer confirmed, startx feature won't come in this year, it seems reverting back to teamviewer 12 is the only option for startx folks.

Teamviewer ver 12 was not able to connect to computers with a newer version. I tried many different ways to install a fresh version, finally finding a solution (currently ver 15.3.2682):

  • clone teamviewer repository: git clone
  • to enable Multilib package repository, uncomment the following two lines in pacman configuration file /etc/pacman.conf:


#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

  • cd teamviewer
  • makepkg -si
  • download older version of lib32-freetype2: curl -L -O
  • sudo pacman -U lib32-freetype2-2.8-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
  • add lib32-freetype2 to IgnorePkgs in /etc/pacman.conf to make it not get updated during system update
  • sudo systemctl enable gdm
  • reboot
  • restart teamviewer daemon: sudo systemctl restart teamviewerd
  • sudo systemctl enable teamviewerd to make the daemon start at every boot

@francoism90 Looks like it's the startx issue. I'll just use teamviewer12.

@txtsd It works for me when first starting the service and launching using the terminal:

$ teamviewer

txtsd commented on 2020-03-31 11:32

I enabled the service and rebooted, but I'm still getting this:

λ teamviewer                                                                                                                                                                                  

CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes
Checking setup...
Launching TeamViewer ...
Launching TeamViewer GUI ...

And nothing happens.

Any idea why the launcher isn't working?

For newcomers, it is necessary to start the daemon process like @babaliaris said

babaliaris commented on 2020-03-19 19:02

YOU NEED to enable the teamviewerd.service and then reboot your computer!!! Starting the service won't work for some reason, you must enable it and reboot. This is important!!!

sudo systemctl enable teamviewerd #end then reboot

Teamviewer said not ready until I logged into the website and added my machine as a trusted device. Then it allowed me to login to the application which made me add my device again as a trusted device. It took a while to figure this out so created an account here to help anyone who have this issue.
