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.

@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

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.

@ ArthurBorsboom repackage it with patch to correct teamviewerd.service

Hi, gui launches ok but cannot focus on any text field / button. Program running but cant do much. Thanks

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.
