    Installing Teamviewer 11 on Kali rolling x64

    First some background info.

    This issue came up in the irc channel. I found it to be a strange problem as it has previously not been a problem to install on any of the versions I have used in the past.

    Firstly I am using VMware Workstation 12.0.0 build-2985596
    I am using kali-linux-2016.1-amd64.iso

    This is installed in the normal way and I have tried this both with and without VMware tools installed following http://docs.kali.org/general-use/ins...ols-kali-guest

    I have tried this method several times without any issues, but I still consider it to be a fugly method.

    With all that out of the way, please follow at your own risk. It works for me but I cannot guarantee differences in installs will not cause issues.



    Download teamviewer_11.0.53191_i386.deb

    From

    Code:
    From http://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/linux/
    Then move it to your home dir to make it easier to find.

    Then enter the following commands

    Code:
    root@KALI:~# apt-get update
    Code:
    root@KALI:~# apt-get upgrade
    Code:
    root@KALI:~# dpkg --add-architecture i386
    Code:
    root@KALI:~# apt-get update
    Now we are setup to start the real install process

    Code:
    root@KALI:~# apt-get install libc6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libasound2:i386 libfreetype6:i386 zlib1g:i386 libsm6:i386 libxdamage1:i386 libxext6:i386 libxfixes3:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libxrender1:i386 libxtst6:i386 libxinerama1:i386 graphicsmagick adwaita-icon-theme libgtk-3-0 libjpeg62-turbo libdbus-1-3 libexpat1 libfontconfig1 libjpeg62
    You WILL get a message saying:

    Code:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     libjpeg62-turbo : Conflicts: libjpeg62
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    Just ignore that message

    Code:
    root@KALI:~# apt-get -f install
    Now from here is where I think it gets fugly, you will see why but I didn't see any way around it.

    Code:
    root@KALI:~# dpkg -i teamviewer_11.0.53191_i386.deb
    You will get a message saying:

    Code:
    Selecting previously unselected package teamviewer:i386.
    (Reading database ... 311652 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to unpack teamviewer_11.0.53191_i386.deb ...

     teamviewer:i386 depends on libxrandr2.
     teamviewer:i386 depends on libxrender1.
     teamviewer:i386 depends on libxtst6.
     teamviewer:i386 depends on zlib1g.
    
    dpkg: error processing package teamviewer:i386 (--install):
     dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     teamviewer:i386
    You will notice that they are deps that should have already been installed..... but hey... lets carry on.

    Code:
    root@KALI:~# apt-get -f install
    And that's it.

    Teamviewer 11 should now be installed and can be started like this:

    From the menu Applications > Usual Applications > Internet > Teamviewer

    or from terminal by typing

    Code:
    root@KALI:~# teamviewer
    You should see output like this before the actual GUI starts if starting from the terminal

    Code:
    Init...
    XRandRWait: No value set. Using default.
    XRandRWait: Started by user.
    Checking setup...
    Launching TeamViewer ...
    Launching TeamViewer GUI ...

    As I said, this has worked exactly as shown here several times.

    I hope it works for you too.

    Thanks for the excellent post. For those after running the instructions posted and getting "Teamviewer daemon not running" error message. Then enter teamviewer --daemon enable

    Hi
    Even after I sudo apt-get -f install, I get following error:
    Preparing to unpack teamviewer_11.0.57095_i386.deb ...
    Unpacking teamviewer:i386 (11.0.57095) ...
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of teamviewer:i386:
    teamviewer:i386 depends on libpng12-0.
    ..... looks like package libpng12-0. is nt getting installed.
    Why could this be?
    THanks

    i am having trouble installing as well however i was able to before i did a fresh install.. followed same instructions so i really dont know wht can be wrong



    edit: UPDATED 7/26. using my previous method will not allow you to use apt-get.


    before using apt-get -f install, open up /var/lib/dpkg/status in a texit editor ( recommend backing up before editing) . find teamviewer then find the list of dependencies. delete libpng12-0 from the list and save. now run your apt-get -f install. and continue down the rest of my list of commands if you still get a messege when starting up about no daemon running. teamviewer is now working for me and i can update computer with apt-get as well


    i think i found a fix...


    after the last apt-get -f install, instead of hitting y for yes type for no, then type in terminal ( you may have to hit y, i am not sure since i have been trying over and over to get this working and dont remember what it looked like the first time i did it, at this point for me apt-get -f install was trying to REMOVE teamviewer so i hit n fo no)
    Code:
    teamviewer --daemon enable
    Code:
    systemctl enable teamviewerd.service
    Code:
    systemctl start teamviewerd.service
    Code:
    teamviewer
    this allowed me to open up the program... i am not sure if these lines need to be used every restart and i have not tried connecting to or from the computer. this simply allowed me to open up the program

    I followed @balding_parrot instructions exactly as mentioned above and they didn't work.
    I'm running Kali 2016.1.
    When you do apt-get -f install the second time it removes Teamviewer altogether. And I chose Y and let the Teamviewer get removed.
    after that i ran installed Teamviewer again using following command
    Code:
    dpkg -i teamviewer_11.0.53191_i386.deb
    and then
    Code:
    teamviewer --daemon enable
    You can run it by running /opt/teamviewer/tv_bin/desktop/teamviewer-teamviewer11.desktop
    or from command line as simply
    Code:
    teamviewer

    download the missing packages manually
    example
    libxrandr2 for i386 and new version dowload here :
    https://packages.debian.org/stretch/...andr2/download
    and install
    run
    apt-get upgrade check packages
    install all missing packages
    and reinstall teamviewer
    sorry , my English is bad

    Try using the following.

    dpkg --force-depends -i teamviewer.deb


    You will have to change teamviewer.deb to whatever the actual file name is. This is what worked for me. Hope it helps you.
