    Getting error:

    ERROR: cannot verify download.teamviewer.com’s certificate, issued by ‘/C=GB/ST=Greater Manchester/L=Salford/O=COMODO CA Limited/CN=COMODO RSA Domain Validation Secure Server CA’:
    Unable to locally verify the issuer’s authority.

    To connect to download.teamviewer.com insecurely, use `–no-check-certificate‘.

    Can you please help with it

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Suheb,

      Just add the -–no-check-certificate at the end of the wget command as shown.

      # wget https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/teamviewer.x86_64.rpm –-no-check-certificate

    How do you get TeavViewer to run automatically after a reboot so you can log in to it remotely. At the moment no matter what I do I need to locally log into KDE before TeavViewer starts

    THANKS !!! You are the best !

  5. mauricio says:

    perfect

  6. Dan says:

    TeamViewer does not work with Wayland – you need to run in Xsession. Fedora 25 will default to Wayland, cause it works better, so keep that in mind.

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Dan,

      Thanks for the tip, yes I agree Fedora 25 comes with Wayland, but I tried TeamViewer 12 on my CentOS 7 and Fedora 23 worked perfectly..

  7. Ariel C says:

    I installed it over 11 version properly. thank you

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Ariel,

      That’s really great, in my case I removed earlier 11 version and installed fresh TeamViewer 12 to avoid any conflicts….

  9. frank says:

    FYI, the teamviewer download has changed on their website. If you’re having errors like “teamviewer.deb is not a debian archive file” then you need to download it from the new location with:

    sudo wget http://download.teamviewer.com/download/teamviewer_i386.deb
