Go to teamviewer-beta for beta/preview releases

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.

@liviu.daniel I can confirm. System tray icon is broken for me as well on Manjaro KDE - QT v5.15.1

It breaks the system tray icon on Manjaro KDE flavor. QT version is 5.15.1.

I am using teamviewer 15.11.6-1 and am facing the same issue as Ataraxy:

Nov 14 07:30:59 user systemd[1]: /usr/lib/systemd/system/teamviewerd.service:9: PIDFile= references a path below legacy directory /var/run/, updating /var/run/ → /run/; please update the unit file accordingly.

Additionally, I receive:

Nov 14 07:31:52 hostname systemd[1]: Starting TeamViewer remote control daemon...
Nov 14 07:31:52 hostname systemd[1]: teamviewerd.service: Can't open PID file /var/run/ (yet?) after start: Operation not permitted
Nov 14 07:31:52 hostname systemd[1]: Starting TeamViewer remote control daemon...

I checked that .pid file and though it is owned by root:root it has read rights for every user, so should be fine in my opinion:

-rw-r--r--  1 root root    4 14. Nov 07:31 teamviewerd.ipc
-rw-r--r--  1 root root    3 14. Nov 07:31

My problem is:

If I manually start the TeamViewer daemon (sudo systemctl start teamviewerd.service) after a reboot, I can regularly start and use TeamViewer. If I permanently enable the TeamViewer daemon (sudo systemctl enable teamviewerd.service) however, I can only start TeamViewer but it will never show me an ID.

In both cases, the daemon goes to active state and shows the exact same error messages. I have no clue why TeamViewer only generates the ID when the daemon is started manually (in both cases the TeamViewer HMI shows Ready to connect with a green circle next to it). Anyone else facing that issue?

/tmp/teamviewerTARLibCheck can be deleted at the end of the prepare step.

@praut Thanks a lot, your solution works for me too! Like @crisco, I'd also like to know more about potential implications of setting type=X11 in /etc/pam.d/system-login.

Downgrade to qt5-base 5.15.0-4 allowed me to copy and paste, however after lastest major manjaro upgrade, my system crashed and I realized that upgrading to the latest qt5 fixed this system crash. Any other solution for TeamViewer? thanks

crisco commented on 2020-10-11 18:16

@praut changing the session-type like this worked for me, although I'm uneasy about the ramifications of setting the session type to x11 globally. Does anyone know what affects this may have long-term?

For people was installed Teamviewer with yay.

Need to start the Teamviewer service with: sudo systemctl start teamviewerd

And stop the service with: sudo systemctl stop teamviewerd

it's related to the regression introduced in versions of qt5-base after 5.15.0-4, which also breaks the system tray icon. if you downgrade the qt5-base package to that version, copy+paste and the tray icon should work normally again.
